Day 25 (July 2, 2015)

…jetting back
and lagging
again
“no really”
i tell him
at immigration
“i am a professor
even though
i went to
indonesia”
and
“right –
i did
go to bali
even though
we have beaches
in goa”
and
“yeah
even though
a month with
family is bordering
on insanity
it still doesn’t
constitute
a terrorist
anomaly”
and
“ok ok
teacher of
social workers
is too vague
a profession
so
how ’bout
i teach ferguson?”
confirming finally
that
i am still alien
he
stops looking
for a visa
and
gives me that
ET finger –
“(welcome) hoooome”
and yet….
