(I was sick so I'm behind a week. Will try to catch up soon.)


dear world


it is time to realise

that a part of me

will never quite belong

to (any part of) you


it will never be well understood:

it will have a funny accent

and its name will never be

pronounced correctly.


it will be a stranger

in every country and

when it dies it will not know

anything other than being


different, out of order

having always lived

on the other side

of every border


it won't quite die

like you and i
