Quand tu trouves un homme… When you find a man…

Quand tu trouves un homme

qui transforme chaque partie de ton être en poésie, qui fait de chacun de tes cheveux un poème,

quand tu trouves un homme

capable, comme moi, de te baigner et de te parer de poésie,

je t’en supplie, suis-le sans hésiter. Ce qui importe n’est pas que tu appartiennes à lui ou à moi, mais plutôt que tu appartiennes à la poésie.

*  *  *

When you find a man

who transforms every part of you into poetry, who makes each one of your hairs into a poem,

when you find a man,

capable, as I am, of bathing and adorning you with poetry,

I will beg you to follow him without hesitation. It is not important that you belong to me or him, but that you belong to poetry.
