My ignorance on Czechoslovakia

I have five fingers in each hand

and five fingers in my two feet

and I have five Czech friends.

Three are staunch anticommunists,

but two are nuanced in their politics.

These friends held me, gave me,

hosted me, confronted me and taught me,

like no one else ever did.

Two women and three men represent 

the Czech soul and country to me.

And so,

I would like to now befriend a Slovak.
