If you come to my house, friend

Forough Farrohzah (1935-1967), Iranian feminist poet and film director.

I speak out of the deep of night
out of the deep of darkness
and out of the deep of night I speak.

If you come to my house, friend
bring me a lamp and a window I can look through
at the crowd in the happy alley.

–Forough Farrokhzad
