Tonight

Had you been around tonight we could talk;
—a world of Hijal Shirish stars grass breeze all surround.
But all our thoughts feeling emotions are filtered
through reasons and logic, and made to the point

I have been through all those protocols and their consequence
Seen India London Rome New York China's chronicles
The story of tonight and the extinct mammoths
All are covered by fierce discipline.
Where are you lost—which dice to cast in hand?

A wonderful translation. Faithful to the text, yet sonorous to the ears.
