Trapped meanings in steel and concrete

The hunger of the body
sits silently
as loss
in movement from
one country
to another
in search of a living
in fulfilling
a promise
of a home,
of savings
of a future
for the children.

The hunger of the body
sits silently
in search of sense
in a job
that would secure
the promises.
The body works
harder, even harder
in search of meaning
in search of the promise
in search of dignity,
the promises made
And the dreams unfulfilled.

The hunger of the body
sits silently
as shame
because the body
must be tamed
must be silenced
must be erased
Meanings don't belong here
shuttered, lost,
long betrayed.
Dignity does not belong here
As the body must work,
and learn
to be silent.
