      THE ETERNAL REFUGEE
      (c) 1998 by Eno Nevsky

      How does one know
      that one has been finally accepted?
      Is it the absence, for a few days,
      of the proddings of bayonets?
      And some warm food cooked by someone
      who actually smiles at you
      for no particular reason?

      The eternal refugee
      has once been thrown out
      for a crime of sheer identity
      And again been thrown out
      for no crime at all
      And again been placed
      on a human garbage heap
      of a camp somewhere with no name
      and no press releases
      and no theatre

      The eternal refugee
      is lost in the distance
      of the considerations of most people
      is somewhere else on the planet,
      can't be here.
      Because here we have a Good Neighborhood.

      The eternal refugee
      knocks on a door
      and then must wait to see whether or not
      a machine gun pokes out from a window.

      Wars do manage to end somehow --
      if nothing else they run out of ammunition
      But scars of wars
      and refugees
      remain forever on the landscape.
