Black Means Night

By Baktash Abtin

Translated By Parisa Saranj

Black means night
and a dark alley means
your bright voice after we say goodbye
whether I will be or not
every evening,
my dreams will
kiss you in that alley!
White means hospital
and the thin blades of the fan mean
the world spins around me
You are not here so I
could wash the feet of the night
and wrapped in a white blanket, I
pretend to be dead
