Reflections - Doug Bradbury

Doug hands out empty water bottles in the Kiziba Refugee camp

by Doug Bradbury

Dust covers everything
Dust accumulates inches deep on the road to Kiziba
Dust covers church roof
Dust clumps in the corner of a kids eye
Dust turns a UNHCR tarp from white to brown
Dust chokes Kiziba lungs
Dust must be washed from a car
Dust piles on top of victim's clothes
Dust becomes of victim's bones
Dust settles in my heart
Dust I am
Dust, I will remember
Dust, I will return.
