these days or
everyone is a child of the inbetween
or
everyone is a child of the inbetween these days

and so welcome
and so welcome
and so by being here

i forgot
forgot how to speak
your language broke me
In

whatever else you do.
you paid for this too

do or didn’t speak geography.
and so had no way
to start again.
forgot

forgot
and
there’s a kindness in containment also
the arbitrary ways
and so
after

after someone asked me where i was from
and because i had no way
of
with lines in the sand

everyone is a child of the inbetween
these days
and so
you can’t enter here without speaking.

i lost my voice.
but everyone is a child
of the inbetween these days.

there is kindness in containment also
the lines in the sand
the arbitrary ways we keep
and so
where can we meet?

where one speech meets another
i forgot

you have paid for this too
and so welcome to
the lines in the sand

where one speech meets another
and you’re a child
kindness in
keep

people in
our out
of the inbetween
and you paid for this too.
the arbitrary ways
where one speech meets another
on these days
of the inbetween
