(poetry diary  209-3/18/17) Posting a link to the latest Rattle “Poets-Respond” poem today, one  by Cristi Donoso Best: “…in response to John Kelly, Secretary of DHS, asserting that he will consider separating immigrant children from their mothers at the Mexico-US border and placing them in foster care.”

AFTER A LONG JOURNEY

You receive no welcome. What
the coyotes have not gnashed
between their teeth the men in
uniform will take.
