Think about the town where you currently live: its local customs, traditions, and hangouts, its slang. What would be the strangest thing about this place for a first-time visitor?
(Thanks for inspiring this prompt, Tamarah Rockwood!)
I’m a stranger,
In my own city.
Back from afar.
Been here a while,
But still feeling bizarre.
Home, but not quite all here.
I’m not yet accustomed to the atmosphere.
It’s true the world’s a sphere,
I sometimes wish I could disappear.
If you were to come,
You’d feel more welcome.
Than me, than anyone here,
