Meek (NaPoWriMo #29) *plus* an optional quiz

.A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.

The albinos sit  huddled together in the cafeteria
Picking at bits of rice drowned again since the paddies
In shy angst, they watch plates topped with hamburgers pass
As owners chow down on ketchup dipped fries
In quiet murmurs they sip fruit juice at their table
Watching with curious eyes, but no words.
———————————————————————————-

THE QUIZ:
In each line except the last, there is at least one “loan word” used in the English language that originates from another country. See if you can match a word to each of these languages and post your answer in the comments below!
Chinese, French, German, Bahasa (Indonesian), Spanish

———————————————————————————
So it’s a bit of a variation on the prompt, but that’s alright, I think. This one was inspired by the group of young dancers from Denmark who are very sweet but extremely shy. They are a wonderful addition to the international cast of the dance festival, and are dearly loved by everyone. So this one’s for the Bournonville dancers!

PS: I know I am late on this NapoWriMo business, but I’m doing my best to finish it ASAP with the time that I have.
