a small boy, maybe four years old, with smooth skin the color of night, wearing only the same red shirt and dirty underwear everyday

walking back and forth across the makeshift soccer field from very early in the morning until the moon is all that lights up the dusty haitian landscape

to and from fresh water that is too far away

with nothing but his animal sounds to break the monotony

young enough to make it all a game
and too young to understand structural violence


"this should be the only thing we put in the time capsule we launch into deep space." (youtube)
