Chained For Seeking Refuge at A Port in the Storm, by Roberta Monokroussos

Star-spangled banner
denies asylum-seekers’ 
entry to its ports
Lady Liberty laments
human rights viewed as a crime

A woman’s heart breaks
children’s endless howling tears
followed by deep grief
Country’s acute injury
Does it need dialysis?
