Bilingual, But Not The MM Poetry Collection

Bilingual, But Not -
Mother may I 
catch the waves of the sea 
on my tongue  
And drink of you 
Of these sounds  
I trip over  
Like currents  
a lone fish  
fights  
 
Father why do 
You roll your R’s 
Like the crashing tides 
And speak one way  
On the phone 
And English at home  
I wait in your shadow 
And listen 
To Faiyruz  
 
-Bilingual but not.
