Survival, short hand for a migrant

Residue of self

Caste, Class,Faith, Race

Find meaning

In art

In the words that are carved

Sculptures of the mind

To hold the person

Deep within

The world outside

Needs paper

Passport,Visa, Bank Statement

To construct the self

Borders and passport stamps

Delineate the migrant

In the amphitheater of life

The border offers opportunity

Also a sense of dissolution

Of the self
