Poem No.: 104 النص العربي: لا يوجد

I saw you in a body where stallions moan

and from whose arms storms emerge.

Abandoned to sighs

trampled by fillies with the whinnying of desire

and the infatuations of mating,

words issued from you like a reed tucked

between sadness and steel.


I saw you among a murdered race

storming with fire and broken glass.

A body raving with love,

a soul neglected by death.


Translated by Khaled Mattawa From Naqd aL-Amal. Dar aL-Kunooz al-Adabiya, Beirut 1998
