Still Photo by Sheila Jacob

i.m. Aylan Kurdi

 

At first glance

he might be asleep

or merely stunned.

 

In a while he’ll

turn, wriggle,

lift his head

from its salty

grey pillow,

 

cry out

for his Mum.

 

But days,

weeks,

months

pass by.

 

He’s still

lying there

 

dressed

for the journey.
