Credible fear interview

pink “tennis” swing to and fro.
she’s wearing zebra stripes and a red top,
tiny in the cushy big chair that rolls.
long black hair narrows her face, shielding the girl
from my gaze, but the officer sees, pushes
the tissue box towards her, asks: are you willing
to return to El Salvador, yes or no?
