words, words, words. or lack of them

when i was lost for a word in translation, i called my mother.

who seemed to have the right words.

now the world’s best dictionary is gone, but the translation problems remain.

o woe be me, lost in the maze of non-equivalence. the world is not the same, not the same at all.
