Poem 4

This poem was recited by Vincent:

It’s over. My home, my kingdom all have become atoms. 

I’m here with the shovel I used to bury my people. Alone. 

Now I have to leave and I believe that there’s a perfect place where I can live. 

With a lot of courage and a long trip, 

I finally arrived in Anchorage and what a change! 

It’s like a mirage, a wonderful mirage! 

Now I have a new home, a new kingdom.
