Found In Translation

Did you hear the lilt
in her voice?
It was caused by
surprise.
Her first job of influence

To translate for a
World leader.
She
had
arrived.

How was she to know
that it was her voice
others would identify
calling their leader a devil.

Even now she was still
cast sideways glances when it was
explained that she only repeated
what was said.

She felt she knew the price
of being lost in translation.

But she never anticipated
how dear
the price of things found
in translation were.
