Aside

We do not translate

Inspired by Adam Stone’s poem, which was in turn inspired by – well, you’ll see it if you clicky the linky.

You do not easily translate into my life. There are no
click-and-drag handles to pull you into focus –
no x or y or z axis along which our relationship make sense,

and yet we do because

you have translated me into “beautiful soul” in
some other language that has no word in it for
“insurmountable.”
