the man from macedonia

it shames that i can’t place the place
despite the itch at the back of my mind
i offer up hannibal but mean alexander the great
and you add in mother theresa
for a small place it has a good record

and it has the largest lake in europe
and the deepest
and the most beautiful
you know, because you have dived there

north of greece
you speak macedonian
i promise i will read up on it for next time
best food, i should visit
you’ve been here six months
your car is two months old
you are a new american
and me, ten years here, and wondering
