منسلاً عند الفجر
القمر فوق السطوح مداعبا
عري جسدها

~

صرخة الغراب
وردة سوداء
في حقل الربيع

~

The crow’s caw
a black rose swaying
in a field of flowers

Her Soft Ferocity

The lioness –
at the flick of her red hair
whole forests burn to the ground.

~

Prancing tigress –
her pheromones etched into the air
billow like a moan, ancient, primal,
burning the sun in her own heat,
melting the clouds in their own tears.

~

Leonine finesse –
She wore beauty for a mane
Making the ocean froth,
The night ooze its stars
Into the earth’s aching womb.
