    The Mediterranean
    Waves crash
    I tumble in its whirlpool

    fills my nostrils, my mouth,
    I gag

    escape its wet, jealous, embrace
    rub it off across the sunburnt, sizzling, soundful sand
    hear its mournful roars fade

    accept the sand’s welcome
    lie on it
    dream in its presence

    I see that bright, white pebbled floor gleaming
    I taste that over zesty popsicle
    I feel the translation, the silence
    I hear the eux, ah, haut, i,
    I smell the intoxicating heat, the fresh bread, the earthy sweat

    I know the meaning of se baigner, la famille, faire la vaisselle
    I sing:

    un ami à droite
    un ami à gauche
    à tous bon appétit

    un ami à droite
    un ami à gauche
    à tous bon appétit

    merci Seigneur
    pour ce repas
    merci Seigneur
    pour ces bons plats
    merci Seigneur
    pour ces amis

    à tous bon appétit
    à tous bon appétit

    I am French

    I am in

    I am Milie

    I am Èmilie.
