I will choose from my intimate memories what’s fitting:
the scent of wrinkled sheets after making love
is the scent of grass after rain.
— Mahmoud Darwish, from “Dense Fog Over The Bridge,” If I Were Another: Poems. Translated by Fady Joudah. (Farrar, Straus and Giroux; 1 edition, October 27, 2009) Originally published 2009.
