    ... Born on an Island a third world away
    ... Tropical Storms on an island in the Empire State
    ... Norms, values, climates migrate
    She'd return
    ... Nostalgic mourning for that which stays

    My great-grand mother
    ... Torn from overtime work-days
    ... Adorns home with pay in tacky old ways
    ... Past noon but moon is still in space
    to Rest
    ... Sworn in citizen to this foreign place

    John Paul Infante
