Speed of Television

Grandmother asks, in our mother tongue,

“Those people in the box; where are they?”

In the gap

in which I consider

the distance between dimensions,

between radio and television,

between my grandmother and me,

my mother simply answers, “Amerika.”

 


 

Word Prompt: distant
