On the accidental strength of two
rough diamonds he found himself
transplanted, well away from his country's
untowardness, from the familiar danger
of the old, war-torn bush to
our northern skies' strange stars.
He would have been hard put
to point out his whereabouts
or even to explain his fast
arranged flight's logic, frightened wonder
his new captor, and a new
and unfamiliar insecurity.
