Paruyr Sevak - DISCLOSURE

The night… is also my intimate.
When, like a dark woman, disrobed,
She yields to me and
Seduces me –
From our endless embrace
She, herself is born – our dawn,                                                                      
Both dark and fair --
As a mulatto.

And hugging the day like a babe,
As I parade like a proud father,
Mountains, fields and folks
Stare at me in silence
And think –
How can such a miracle child
Issue from such a bizarre
And ugly father…?

Paruyr Sevak
