134x365 – Pedro

arthritis-twisted, diligently hand-triplicated lessons.
(how he learned)

a policemen before regime change,
his home seized, jailed, ex-wife?

(animated telling)
beautiful, resource-rich Peru
but few get all.

not in enough danger;
not granted refugee status;
sent back, died of pneumonia.

Oh dear! Such things happen with people sent back similarly from Australia, too.

I love the way you phrase things. This is a very sad story.
