Kavafis Konstantinos poetry

The tobacconist's window

Near the brightly lit tobacconist's
shop-window they were standing, in a crowd.
Their glances met by chance,
expressing the forbidden longings of
their flesh uncertainly and shyly.
Then a few uneasy paces on the pavement
until they smiled, and nodded slightly.

And then in the closed cab....
the sensuous meeting of bodies;
the joined hands, joined lips.
(translated by Peter J. King and Andrea
