Two Persian Poets

Two Persian Poets
Hafez Moosavi and
 Shams Langeroodi
translated by Gary Gach and Hamed Kashani

Hafez Moosavi
she waves to me

a child

behind a car windowpane

& i blow her a kiss
memorize this

as one day
you may read

the exact same scene in the past tense
& from a different point of view in another poet’s poem 

Shams Langeroodi
what good is a map of the whole world
the maps i love are those you dream up

lined with boundaries rivers subways houses
& a tiny map by you
with a guard at each of the four corners
shouting to each other from their watchtowers

& whose two ends I unite

rolling it all up in a tube
