Third-culture stream

Short poem 9.

 Third-culture stream

The cushion sits there.

Sun-washed, torn, flake-dry

stuffing moldy from the rain.

Like me —

strapped on a ride down a third-culture stream

observing, like that cushion at the yard,

the world’s idiosyncrasies,

while not yet realizing

how much they’ve affected me.
