you’re so goddamned young

sometimes, when we talk
at each other, it reminds me of
a pair of stubborn immigrants
on a ship: you’re speaking german and
i’m replying in russian and
neither of us knows what the fuck
the other is saying, but we are as
determined to be speaking to
someone as we are to be
understood.
