I swam across the Pacific: a short poem


I swam across the Pacific Ocean

with a backpack and skyblue sleeping bag.

I flew into the unknown and unknowingly

moved my life

from the front

to the back

of the Afrikaans-English dictionary.

Some days my clothes fit all backwards.

Question: If you had to paint a word picture of the place you find yourself in right now, where are you?
