shin high corn
stretches in neat rows
on the horizon
clouds crowd
into silos

  wheat fields
clear across this prairie
without break …
in a vast field of stubble
one single bale of straw

    alone again
in the dead of winter
tiptoe back to the night
of my emigration

you say
migrant’s syndrome …
baking those cakes
throwing these parties
trying too hard to fit in

  The foreign words
in her foreign song
could be praise
could be grief
could be love

    the chatter
of prayer flags
in the wind
keeping me awake all night long
these little longings
