strangers



there are words like water
 and i am drowning because i don't know how to swim.

because i had them all, 
and now i am struck mute.
nothing i say will breach the gap.
nothing i say will matter at all.
i don't speak that language.

we move forward,
and out of the noise comes something i know.
he is whistling.
it's a song.
i smile.
neither of us speak english. not really. i'm bad at talking. he is from somewhere else.
 he leaves, and i know that i'll never see him again.

because that's how this works.

the ride is over, and i pass into the other room.
and the noise comes back again.
sweet and high, over the heads of everyone else.
i look over.
he smiles.
we are not so different after all then.
because that is a language i know,
even if i don't speak it.

it's hot here, babe.
