“Do you remember what it was like to dream in Arabic?
Conversations and memories told and retold in Arabic?
In the dream, you fill out your immigration card knowing
residence, nationality, destination, and the form is all in Arabic.
On days that you are awake, you try to remember the word
for life or love or war, full of regret for losing your Arabic.”
