Ken Abustani




her eyes were like


her eyes were like eyes

her lips were like lips

her hair was like hair

her heart was like a metaphor


I was proud to be her only drawback

without me she would have been perfect

if she’d been perfect the world woud have collapsed

I was happy to be guarding the world from her perfection


Ken Abustani, in New Poetry,  An Arts Council Anthology, (Ed. Ted Huges), Hutchinson & Co., Londres, 1980
