[Sunlight] Tambourine Feet -- Ghazal 2323



"Tambourine Feet"

When you are not with me, I sometimes
resemble a fish put live in the skillet,

writhing its little cooking time left,
or the empty eyes of graffiti faces, or

a house with no one home. Other times,
my love for your soul spreads out over

the city like music. Quadrant to quadrant
the jeweled tambourine feet move, palace

to ghetto. The cultured, the craftsman,
the slave, all begin to hum and sing this.

-- Ghazal (Ode) 2323
Version by Coleman Barks, with Nevit Ergin
"The Glance"
Viking-Penguin, 1999
