Passports

Thoughts are passports

To foreign lands

First to be seized

When the unaccustomed mind

Crosses borders

Its panicked interpreter

Speaking in tongues

For the stateless

Held hostage to

Unreasonable demands

Until the corporeal ambassador

Uses her tools of telling

To ransom

Its somatic

Proof of citizenship
