Personal Achievements

I finally remembered

how to make

my way through

this convoluted maze

and as a reward

received a morsel

of Hamtramck, Michigan

a small area

swallowed like cheese by Detroit

but with its own feng shui

composed of Polack-world and Muslim-

land with halal shops

and sausage factories on every corner

I took a tour

of an assembly plant

attended a sweaty wedding

danced to calls for prayer played

up and down Joseph Campau Avenue

Don’t fence me in, I cried

lost in a puzzle of alleys

where the street signs

spoke in tongues.
