"Putting Words in a Notebook that No One Will Read"

Jhumpa Lahiri's childhood play
She recaptured, she writes, seeking
Out another tongue I'll never

Worry about reading again,
Although, it seems, a translator
Betrayed her, and now I read her

In the language of an empire
From an empire in Empire State
Magazine. Unread me. I win.
