Home from home - Scarlet Letters

Nov. 14th, 2011 10:10 am Home from home

From my recent trip back to Britain.

“Sorry pet,”
she said, and smiled
as I pushed in front of her.
 
Instincts honed
or hardened
elbows sharpened
in the Hanoi scrum
 
I have become
imperceptibly, almost
alien in my own land.
