A Man Who Transforms You Into Poetry

by Nizar Kabbani

When you find a man
Who transforms
Every part of you
Into poetry,
Who makes each one of your hairs
Into a poem,
When you find a man,
As I am
Of bathing and adorning you
With poetry,
I will beg you
To follow him without hesitation,
It is not important
That you belong to me or him
But that you belong to poetry.


Just an excuse to post lovely poetry on my blog, because it's the week of Valentine's, and because our block is going to be spending that weekend studying for our Civ Pro midterms on Sunday evening instead.

Here's to love, literature, and everything else in between.
