Foreign Air
by Garth Hill

bottle of water held awkwardly as a second language
her head angular and tilted
______________like some bird
______________listening for falling seeds
she leaned across the conversation and asked,
______________living here
______________and now, under the stars and bars,
______________do you ever get homesick
______________for america?
