Found in Translation

Found in Translation

I have this drawer full of stuff I wrote over the years. Either published in the Dutch Runner's World or a few other titles, posted on one of my old websites, or just written and forgotten. If I find something that I find worth dropping on here, then that's what I'll do. Man, it is lovely being my own editor-in-chief. This one I wrote back in 2007. I’ve always loved languages. For many years, I kept a list of mistakes or funny ways of saying I heard in English and turned it into a love song. It’s called Found in Translation.

last autumn, you came to meet my city
we watched the sleeves fall off the trees
last autumn, you took care of me
when I hurt my left uncle
and you told me about your childhead
how you used to be skinny as a toothpaste
how your favorite food is moshed potatoes
how your brother works at a bonck
where he deals in stockings

last autumn, your moth touched mine
I told you how beautiful you look
now that the sun blushed you
I gave you a gentle back message
you told me softly that
you wanted to make sex with me

I felt in love with you
when you looked at me and told me
how you love my blue ears

from a different country you are
I can only wish you good look
if you try to separate us
some say we might be lost but

I think I found you in translation
