What Her Girl Friend Said to Her

Kuruntokai 66

These fat cassia trees
are gullible:

the season of rains
that he spoke of
when he went through the stones
of the desert
is not yet here

though these trees
mistaking the untimely rains
have put out
long arrangements of flowers
on their twigs

as if for a proper monsoon.
