Relations in Wartime

Relations in Wartime
The black eye
of an Uzbekistani schoolboy
who got injured for his support
Some pensioners from a remote Uzbek village
Wanting to send their pensions to Kyiv
Sharing conflict stories or
“Recognize your son’s dead body” posts
Might Not Count.
The host government’s statement
condemning the war
Would resonate more than those.
I am crying with the Ukrainian Ambassador
In a balanced, neutral zone.
