And you thought we forgot. Two poems today!
Two Giant Fat People by Rumi Hafiz
God and I have become
Like two giant fat people
Living in a tiny boat
Bumping into each other
Mismatched Newlyweds by Rumi Hafiz
Like a pair
Of mismatched newlyweds,
One of whom still feels very insecure,
I keep turning to God
Saying, “Kiss me.”
These and other amazing translations of Hafiz’s poems can be found in The Gift.
