The Pigeons Fly

from by Marcel Khalife



The pigeons fly
the pigeons descend

Prepare the land for me so I can rest
because I love you until I'm weary...
Your morning is fruit from song
and this evening's made of gold
And we are ours
when a shadow enters its shadow in marble,
and when I hang myself it is myself I resemble
on a neck that embraces only clouds.
You are the air undressing before me like
tears of grapes,
you are the start of a family of waves
gripping the shore and estranging itself,
and I love you, you're my soul's beginning
and you're the end

The pigeons fly
the pigeons descend
