Archie [Khatchig] Minasian: A Romp With the Wind

the wind threw rose petals at me,
tugged my hair
and pushed me around.


flattered
I ran with the wind
and called it names.

Un revolcón con el Viento(Traducción de Carolina Contino)
el viento me arrojó pétalos de rosa,
tiró de mi pelo
y me atropelló.


halagado
corrí con el viento
y lo insulté.
