Come Beloved / Hanna Jahanforooz

O come beloved and
for thy lover’s sake
untangle this contorted,
uncertain affair
Fill our cup with wine,
may it be sour or sweet
Before the potter fashion our
ashes and dust into hollow cups
with silent, parched lips

O come beloved and
for thy lover’s sake
untangle this contorted,
uncertain affair

Fill our cup with wine,
may it be sour or sweet

Before the potter fashion our
ashes and dust into hollow cups
with silent, parched lips.
