avant la pluie --
dans l'arbre deux tourterelles
font l'amour
before the rain --
two turtle doves in the tree
making love

Al-Nakba ---
rusted front-door keys
in the drawer
Al-Nakba ---
a long way 
home

pluie fine --
sur les herbes roussies
par l'herbicide
light rain --
on the whitered grass
by the weed killer

fin de sécheresse --
dans le pré la vache boite
sous la pluie fine
end of drought --
in the meadow the cow limps
under the light rain

sale temps --
sur la pente l'homme pousse
son Karcher
bad weather --
on the slope the man pushs
his Karcher
