How have I traveled
so many miles
never knowing that each
was five thousand two hundred eighty feet?
How can I have lived
and still think a meter
is that thing the gas company reads?
And, how can I help
my girl understand
ounces and grams
without revealing my frame of reference?
I had to cheat it a bit, but it's 55 words for MY G-Man. G-Man is hosting his last Friday Flash 55 today. Go on over and thank him for all he's done to keep the internet interesting.
