IN ARAB LANDS
(12/14/17)

I grew
up
dreaming
of travel

exotic
locations

foreign
adventures

the hospitality
of the indigenous
inhabitants

now
I envision
kidnapping

torture

death

I'll be going
nowhere
in the near
future

I can watch
beheadings
on TV

eat
a frozen
falafel

imagine a tent
on windswept
sands
where I am
welcomed
