1/4

then I found a dark spot
away from the tiger stripes
of light piercing the street

& practiced the art
of becoming a stranger
in a country of strangers

slipping a stranger’s
tongue through
the soft shell of my mouth

bring back
my Mother
bring back

the lazy language
learnt long before
I needed it not

at all
