I have strange longings for familiar faces
and new desires for old smells and tastes,
wide eyes for all the closed and shuttered places,
shut eyes that make these open fields a waste,
longings for what already I've achieved,
yearnings for what I never longed to earn,
wish to acclaim those things which I should grieve,
no wish to learn the language I must learn.
