We Were Lucky

An energetic art session with children during “Art Inside Karnes.”

We were lucky.

            We traveled by bus.

My sister paid for the trip.

            I came with my two children.

My sister sent $1,000

            to pay for the guide

            to cross the river.

Then immigration picked us up.

We were locked in the hielera

            for three days.

It was not heated.

            It was very cold.

It was not a good place.

            Then they brought us here.

We have been in family detention

            Nine months.
