Where do children play?

Where do children play?

Their names carved in the keel
of the vessel in which they travel;
their margins, our boundaries,
their songs, pushed to the center
of what matters in our fallible and
sensitive lives, seeking responses
to the unknown.  Position yourselves
next to the mystery of their music.
Where do children play?
In time . . . that abstract glimmer
that does not bond to anything; 
the school of a submissive homeland?
