Artwork for The Alipore Post
Created in response to a poem by Hafez
There is a beautiful creature
living in a hole you have dug.
so at night,
I set fruit and grains
and little pots of wine and milk besides your soft earthen mounds,
and I often sing.
But still, my dear, you do not come out.
I have fallen in love with someone
who hides inside you.
We should talk about this problem.
I will never leave you alone.
