With my highs & lows
my highs of hot air rising & lifting the alls of
my alls or nothings
& my lows flattening my nothings
as if there were nothing there
with all languages but the English language
with everything but the English language
& the English language loud, sleepless
& unstoppable as gibberish
as a second language
you'd think I would have by now
but I haven't
have I.
