there is nothing so wonderful as a native tongue-
you pouring neruda in my ears, the spanish tonal
and thick, and perhaps the fact that the meaning
escapes me makes the experience all the more vital;
there’s beauty in language, how the sound wraps
itself around our bones. you could be saying
the dirtiest things, but that cannot soil the purity
of you sharing the words of your home.
