Title: M'ap Vole

I was so shocked to see a title in Creole, I called me mom into my room to show her. It always makes me smile to come across another Haitian. I love your writing. This was so beautiful, thank you for sharing it here.

Title: La Fievre

Such a lovely surprise to see a story title with Haitian creole pop out at me! Being Haitian American as well, I felt I understood this poem (because, let's face it--that's what it is) on multiple levels. It tasted like sweet tablet!

But of course, it is also foreign because I am not of your family, and the familiarity of your personal relationship and your nickname empasizes that I am a stranger.

It merely made me long for my heritage, family members long pass, and plate of my mom's diri ak d'jon d'jon, may she continue to rest in peace.

Thank you for the tears and the smiles.
