BLACK CAT POEMS

translated by Jethro Bithell
MY fingers squeeze your fat, bent neck, and while
Your chignon yields and of itself falls down,
Your capsized eye-balls in your rapture drown,
Your lips half-open smile.
A hair-pin falls upon your shoulder now,
And sounds thin on the floor; your arms that beat
The air with
exhausted, fondling meet
With naked wrists my brow.
And in the low room where your mirrow pales
The many-times repeated round-globed lamp,
Like a thick vapour in the air's warm damp
Your perfume floats, and stales.
