While I'm thinking about the complicated but grandiose mythical world of William Blake,
my impulse allures me to the irresistible charm of a woman I know. (August 31, 2002)

ILLITERATE by Shadab vajidi translated by Loftali Khagi

I know a man
who reads all inscriptions on ancient stones
and who knows
the grammars of all languages, dead or alive,
but who cannot read
the eyes of a woman
whom he thinks he loves.
