I Miss the Children

The shadow of a smile
the shadow of a shadow

of a shadow
of a smile

keeps showing up

in changing light
in change

teeth, no teeth,
tight thin

lipless, this

the lost children
their lost parents

the circus of grief
the grimy

half-eaten repetitions
nothing will ever

be safe
be sane
be saved
in shadows

   An ICE prison bus full of baby seats.
