Read excerpts
On our shared bus ride,
my neighbors
are discussing walls.

And one says
that “America was built
upon immigrants”.
And the other nods
in silent accord.

And I too agree,
yet want to correct him
that the word he meant to use was
for, or by, or with.

But, I keep silent.
Upon will serve.
It too is correct.
As battlefields are built
upon soldiers.
