I may never be able to decipher
the Cyrillic languages
with their characters so deceptively
similar to my own,
asking me to misinterpret.
But here!- where translation
is packaged conveniently
between leatherclothcardboardpaper,
it would be so easy to know,
like picking tomatoes.
I’m sure the pop would be delicious
and sour-sweet
but I am unfortunately allergic,
and my eyelids swell up
with a hint of lycopene,
so I’ll have to remain
feasting on air.
