10.52

(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
