The Morning Reading: "They look at our arid lives"

Items left behind by undocumented immigrants lie on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande River on July 24, 2014 near Mission, Texas. Photograph by John Moore.

We look
at their lush lives
across the river.
They look
at our arid lives
crossing the river.

Full poem appears online, published in Guernica.
