a poem shared

(sent from a friend)

When a lover
wrapping a fist in her
thick black braid
forces her with rough kisses --
Ah! savage words
pressed through that indignant
woman's teeth,
may they bring good
to all who suffer.


translated by Andrew Schelling and published (p.47) in The Cane Groves of Narmada River: Erotic Poems from Old India
