Gaza Burning

By Jehan Bseiso

No matter flag.
No matter medicine.
No matter civilian.
No matter international community.
No matter your international waters.
No matter your sanctions, no matter your rhetoric and foreign policy.
Only 62 years status quo,
Everyday Nakba,
Subsidized settlements,
Even more walls-
Matter.
Children on the ICRC bus, visiting their Baba’s in your prisons-
Matter.
Food and medicine rotting at every border-
Matter
From the shadows, the silent majority watch water go on fire.
