ברוך שם שהוא לא עשה אותי אישה

of purview,
where i was born,
except it was, where i was pronounced,
i was birthed to park-view

of the south east region,
where i was born, except the ceremony was attended by militiamen throwing addas over how many rohingyas they had maimed, that afternoon; birthed to exaggerating circumstances

of Sandhurst,
in whose barracks i watched the new nation being filibustered in its own home by a slant-eyed, chinkoo man.
birthed into an affluence of slash and burn

of Taj Mahal bedsheets,
which bedbugged like kalke raate ekhane duti chele chilo
uncertainly, because it was only later,
that i learned that kalke raate ekhane arek ta jaati chilo

of Madhur Princely State,
who in, i could hear ze talk in length about how one of ze’s friends had been back from the woods, to talk in even greater length to ze, about how the woods contained cannibals.

of Golan Heights,
of Golan Heights,
of Golan Heights,
of هضبة الجولان
