foreign language television shows

I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day. My poetry project is grows out of a list of things that make me happy. I made this list on the 30th of March.

The twenty-fifth day is foreign language television shows

Since March of 2020, my travel has been exclusively on Netflix and Amazon. It’s not surprising my favorite escape are shows in foreign languages.

The words trip along the screen
bitte
d’accord
danke
merci

Rivers, mountains, wild ocean cliffs
rural and cityscapes
flash by
within stories of
love, loss, espionage

I ride the river
climb the mountain
jump on the the city bus
and have seat across the aisle
from the young girl
and her friend

Traveling alongside
tripping through dialogue
as fast as my eyes and ears can take it in.
