‘Oh, Canada’ and ‘Patera II’ by Christina Strigas

Thank you for publishing my work!


Montréal Writes


Oh, Canada



Watching the sun rise is one of the most trusted things.
I’m old school. Old soul for shining love.
In Greece, the sunrise overlooked the ocean,
in Canada, the sunrise overlooked Park Ex. 



When I was eight,
I saw Greece in your eyes.
I understood what the word immigrant implied.
All the looks, questions,
Where were you born?
I’m Canadian. I’m Greek.
I’m Greek-Canadian.



I’m nowhere to be found.



I mostly feel like a sea animal—
Life,
hooked me;
it adored my Canadian skin, its delicacy
flapping my fins in the air.
Olive comp...delicacyflappingfound.


IGreek-Canadian.


I’mquestions,
WhereEx.
