the linguist

the linguist


my mother speaks english spanish and french


her laughter sounds the same in all three


little code switcher

she’ll swap between the first two without knowing it


i can barely speak one

but can hold my pace when following her


her smile

no matter the language

is a dead give away

    This is sweet! I can understand the sentiment about the smile, having grown up around bilingual people myself. “Code Switcher” I like that.
