Beni Khaddesh Library

Roadblocks, hurdles, language barrier
Thwarteed requests or something scarier
What do I do when smiling breaks down
Do I display my internal frown?
Tunisia's thrown flags on every play
Tollroad or detour or wrong way


I miss beer
I miss bitter bubbles
I miss burly browns
and ales and porters
an ale, a burger
a cheesesteak, a dog
Anything other than
more goat stew


Bound books in little nooks
Mass market paperbacks
Huddling on the shelves
Most untouched
Some beloved
All beyond me
