Migrants’ Shadows

Their shadows ride
on utopian tides,
following every sunset.
Go west, go west, there’s

no rest in gnawing cold.
Dragged through grass,
through mud and hill,
the weak, the mad, the ill.

They ride the waves, SOS,
god save our souls. Those
sinking feathers, plumage
clouds, shadows in the sea.
