Tiny Mites

  1. Stealing from a beggar’s hat to donate to a mall.
  2. Taking from a refugee to toss around a ball.
  3. Empt’ing off a child’s fork to protest rainbow bills.
  4. Rip away a leaky roof for scrip and purse to fill.
  5. Hide away the homeless tents to fly around the world.
  6. Bury deep hospital beds to sever boy and girl.
  7. Burning books of the unread for deadly pox uncease.
  8. Counting coins and tiny mites to watch the fading peace.

Support independent journalism

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
