hasn’t been outside the country before

Overhearing two girls
passing us by in the concourse,
she turned and whispered excitedly to me,
“They have real British accents!—
not pretend ones.
They’re not acting!”

Then quietly observing them walk away,
she said thoughtfully,
“They really do wear clothes just like ours.”

It’s the lesson of travel.

We’re different,
and we’re the same.
