a•v book review | Asylum for Sale: Profit and Protest in the Migration Industry

0

The same violence that forces people in one country to seek asylum enables another country to fill its detention cells and fill prison contractors’ pockets. It’s a vicious cycle with profit at every step, from detention and deportation to relying on immigrants to accept poorly paid jobs that make bosses rich. ~ Josè Lopez (pseudonym) 

a•v poetry | My City Utica

2

My city is its handful of bars with the same 300 customers cycling in and out.

It’s an up-and-coming city

on America’s longest road race

toward outstretched hands of cold Utica Club beer.

a•v poetry | Silence

0

Silence is not Quiet.
The Quiet is not Silent;
It is vibrant.

Silence lets me hear better;
That whispering inner voice as I listen deeper.

Most never hear that inner voice;
Or refuse to listen by choice.

Deep, deep within me in the Silence;
That inner voice gave me guidance.

Taking time for Silence
showed me how to find resilience.

Be in Silence,
And listen to your inner brilliance.
