Carol Ann Duffy: Salome

(Krátký projekt inspirovaný touto básní)
I'd done it before (and doubtless I'll do it again, sooner or later)
woke up with a head on the pillow beside me
-whose?-
what did it matter?


Good looking, of course, dark hair, rather matted
the reddish beard several shades lighter
with very deep lines around the eyes
from pain, Id guess, maybe laughter
and a beautiful crimson mouth that obviously knew
how to flatter...
which I kissed...
Colder than pewter.
Strange. What was his name? Peter?
...
