FE-IVC: A Sapphic Ode to an Israeli Immigrant

"Shalom aleikhem." The greeting I now use.
"Aleikhem shalom." The response I expect.
"What? Speak English.We're in America."
To which I laughed.

"How're they hanging?" I asked instead.
"An offensive question born from slavery." 
"Who m-me?" I stuttered, "have I gone astray?"
To which you laughed.

Now that's out the way, what have you to say?
Shall we watch Predator rip an Alien apart?
Is that an inappropriate way to friend?
We agree on YouTube.
