Aris Shaklian - MOON

Summer night. Flaunting moon
On the wall’s shoulder.
Soon moves in
Through the window.
Embraces me,
Fondles me.
Kisses me in a lightshow,
And stops with a big sigh of sorrow.
Drizzling rain, a shade of longing,
Loving love-fest…

Sloshed with lovemaking,
I, exhausted,
Reach the roof, and – oh, Lord!
Voluptuousness galore,
Endless embrace,
The ardent moon, savor and smiles all, 
Entwined, fervent and in flames
Is now making out
With all the neighborhood…

--- That shameless harlot…

ARIS SHAKLIAN
1932
