Connections-

 

European car trip to the square with two brothers.

One, my Ukrainian father for my current excursion,

The other is one of the many Sashas that I now know.

 

Getting dropped off to get on a bus with a bunch of Americans,

My papa looks excited for us.

I halfway share this excitement; the words “Soviet-era” aren’t always reassuring

when speaking about accommodations.

 

He leans in for a hearty hug and, as we separate,

I realize that maybe he wanted to kiss me on the cheek…

It’s ok, we’ll see each other when we visit for Easter.
