So very impressed with our very own Carol Martin Sperry, who has just published her translations of the gorgeous & sensual work of French poet Joyce Mansour.

 I opened your head                “J’ai ouvert ta tête

  To read your thoughts             Pour lire tes pensées

  I crunched your eyes                J’ai croqué tes yeux

  To taste your sight.                   Pour goûter ta vue.

  I drank your blood                     J’ai bu ton sang

To know your desire                  Pour connaître ton désir

And your trembling body           Et de ton corps frissonnant

    Became my food.”                     J’ai fait mon aliment.”
