bogus, anomaly, verst

confused by the term, 
she thought hard,
you could see it reflected in her expression,
the furrowed brow and pursed lips
in deep contemplation
‘2 versts and you'll be there.’
Where? What? 2 verses?
She misunderstood, but still tried
to find the lines that could get her
to the destination she wanted to find
"Go 2 versts! 10 blocks that way,
a mile past the Jack in the box.”
Oh God, was he putting her on.
This is a bogus explanation,
she only asked for directions,
not a language lesson
She wished she could look it up
but alas, an anomaly, her phone was dead.
Damn it why did she bother to get out of bed.

words of the day 10/23

ode to Cohen

Hallelujah! You want it darker 
so do I, but first
Dance me to the end of love 
and cover me at Closing Time
in a Thousand Kisses Deep.
