Checkpoint

The above picture is street art of a girl frisking an Israeli soldier. Location: Bethlehem, Palestine.

I wrote the below poem based on my recent trip to Palestine.

“Checkpoint”

have you
seen
the youth
pressed against
fences
barely able to
hold onto
them as
they are
searched and
frisked

they stand
on sites
of daily harassment
but also
that of
revolutionaries
and martyrs

-Israeli military checkpoints in Palestine
