Windows of Understanding:
Middle East Tete’ a Tete’

by KJ Hannah Greenberg

Tattered blue and white banners,
Made in Korea,
Exclaim mistaken fidelity.

Moms, lipsticked like pit bulls,
Push expectations past climaxes,
Resolved by vibrating nations.

Interesting, isn’t it, when enemies
Insist children’s value decreases
Where we need bombs.

If I could capture and slay
The desert hyena crying outside my salon
Windows of understanding would prevail.
