A DOR DO MATRIMNIO

A dor do matrimnio:

coxa e lngua, amado,


carregam seu peso,

que pulsa nos dentes


Buscamos comunho

e somos rejeitados, amado,


todos e cada um

leviat e ns

em seu estmago
atrs de alegria, alguma alegria
inconcebvel fora dele

de dois a dois na arca

dessa dor.

THE ACHE OF MARRIAGE

The ache of marriage:

thigh and tongue, beloved,


are heavy with it,
it throbs in the teeth

We look for communion


and are turned away, beloved,
each and each

It is leviathan and we
in its belly
looking for joy, some joy
not to be known outside it

two by two in the ark of


the ache of it.

Denise Levertov
