no one leaves home unless 
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border 
when you see the whole city running as well…

that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land…

or strip searches where your body is left aching
or prison, 
because prison is safer 
than a city of fire…
