Zeus Poem by Mario Wirz

Zeus



In order to please you
I imitate Zeus
exuberantly
I defy my age
and jump into
every shape
that seduces you
of course these transformations
are strenuous
startled you look
upon the oldish stranger
lying in bed beside you
in the mornings

Anglo American translation by Renate Latimer
