Les anglais/rosbifs

The English abroad

in their pale skins

cotton top hair

hours

that slight half smile

thin acknowledgement

nod in recognition:

yes I have noticed you

but please for gods sake

do not say hello

for I wish to pass as a native

not understanding

their fawn

beige

taupe

stone

colour clothing

white feet in birkenstocks

signalled rosbif

from deux kilometres

away
