“Where did your parents originate? Your grandparents? Imagine you are one of your relatives from that place. This relative is thinking about the old ways of doing things and observing your life as it is now. Is that person approving, disapproving? What does that person want to tell you?”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

I wrote this at 6am when I couldn’t sleep. It’s definitely not my best work but this prompt did not speak to me.

It’s okay to be afraid

Just look at us

We ran away

Bravery is fine

But Canada is better

Asylum!

Asylum!

Just keep your back door open
