Our Differences


If it is anything like Serbo-Croatian,
she said, you don't change your alphabet
in the middle of a sentence.
 

That is what I thought too
until the man peddling ornate flashcards
came to the door,
a simple symbol salesman
with his circles and rectangles and squares,
his loosening fingers dangling himself
dangerously from a trapezoid
above a beckoning black lagoon

unlike you, but then you have always
been of one mind about these matters,
and not just a little odd.
