If he grows up and becomes taller, he will see the horizon

Yannis Ritsos

The boys grew
their clothes became so tight
the bloom of their bodies
was revealed—
in chance encounters
at night
on the lighted streets
after they had wished us a good evening
they acted as if they had sinned
or as if we sinned against ourselves
looking with bowed heads
at their brown shoes.

from The Shadows of Birds (1980) [Collected Poems: IDelta ---pg 355-358]
