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.
