Viewpoint

Mahmoud Darwish , translated from the Arabic by Fady Joudah

The difference between narcissus
and sunflower
is a point of view: the first
stares at his image in water
and says, there is no I but I
and the second looks
at the sun and says I am
what I worship.
And at night, difference shrinks
and interpretation widens.
