This is from a series i started called ‘A Series from Tuesday’ when i was trying to feel into whether i should change my flight again. Thank Bob i did!

the cost of living

Instead of calling Qantas
and waiting fifteen hours
to have a conversation in English
about six-hundred dollars

i leave Chris Zabriskie in the flat
and go downstairs
to have conversations in three languages
about coffee and cigarettes

while i read poems by Moris Farhi
in English for fifteen minutes
and worry outside of language
about the cost of staying in Turkey
