Mahmoud Darwish, from “The Strangers’ Picnic,” in Unfortunately, It Was Paradise: Selected Poems, tr. Carolyn Forché
[text ID: Let us be kindhearted! Take me to the sea at dusk. Let me hear what the sea tells you when it returns to itself in peace. I won’t change. I will embrace a wave and say: Take me to the sea again. This is what the fearful do: when a burning star torments them, they go to the sea.]
