I just need a hug

I am sick
Stupid sickness
Could not speak nor swallow
for two days

I was put to quarantine
by my family
my man, especially
who is so afraid of sickness
just before an important work-trip
I get it

But I relised
how lucky I am
having people around me
every day
having hugs and closeness
every day
touching is so important

I get it only
when I can't get it

Almost burst to tears
when my son came to me
in the evening
just before bedtime

He said:
one day
when you are not sick anymore
I would like to hug you."

cannot wait for this day!

I am so lucky!

From another planet

I am
from another planet

I am
trying to find a job after
a long time not working

too long

I am
managed to get a practice

I am
feeling I have no idea
about anything

I am
not having any clue about
how people work or
what happens in the offices

I am
just learning about it
as if conducting ethnographic fieldwork


I have
no idea how
any of these systems work

Fresh eyes of an alien
these I have

Plus this language that
I still cannot fully grasp

"Ush, jobbigt,"
 as they would say
