Temar France

Without those to hold you there is no freedom to dream. This became evidence of her care and her call to imagine life in a strange body again. Immigrant dreams with Caribbean textures. Look how they gather to freedom and holding each other. Look at how she and the smallest stand, held close to dream freedom. Torn stockings, chin up because she is proud. Smiling wide because I am flying. What is freedom but to dream of being held. She grins wide to say, “I am here too.”
