She screams at the top of her voice:
                                          Y-O-U    D-O   N-O-T   U-N-D-E-R-S-T-A-N-D
resigned to my fate, I apologise once more modulating each word with care and attention
but I am a foreigner, therefore no matter what my language is not hers, no matter what.
her face reddens as her ire explodes and request the presence of a true native speaker of her beloved Ennglish language.

soup too hot
meat not done
salad not dressed
to standard 

ear bleeding
eye closed
maybe some hidden tears

There is

no shelter from the storm
swollen with hunger
the voices are coming

dazzle with pain
the hands embrace the void

She regrets leaving everything behind. The new light mellows like a drunken peach bathes her thoughts.

Your hands clatter you say there is no peace there is no shelter
Your eyes shiver you say there is no more there is no sky

I have my skin: pellucid cloth devoid of thought 
Wanders the fields 
Never settles
Always at crossroads
