From Home

Tonight, I looked at the globe:
Japan.  Fukushima.  Asia.

To the West, China;
To the East, the Pacific

Cold Mother Russia to the North

And I realize I am home,
but not at home.

The West now East
The East now West

The words from my mouth
Vibrate strange sounds

My tongue seems not my own

My God,
How far I’ve gone
From home.
