Turn left a thousand feet from here…

What I really want to give you
I can’t,
Yet all day long
I try painting maps on the sky
With bright, tender sounds

that say,

“Turn left a thousand feet from here,
Just past that next hill.

Then make a sharp right
As soon as you see that big rock
That looks like an egg,
There you will find a decent tavern.”

I am like a wise friend.
If you come close to me

I will write down the address
Of the Woman who will ravish you most.

Hafiz never wants to offend,

So anything I ever say
You can always freely switch the gender,

Come close to me,
I will whisper in your ear

A secret about the One who
Has made us all
Nuts.

—Hafiz
