I am pleased to have a new poem appear in Issue 1.3 of Aperçus Quarterly. I am once again delighted to be in such good company. Also, of all the poems I have written since moving to London in May, this is the first to appear in print. I wrote this poem just three weeks into my new life here, while deep in the throes of culture shock, keenly aware of the differences around me–and especially the symbols and signs. This poem came out of that heightened, almost frenetic, state of awareness.
