A letter from a reader Offering another translation

August 10, 2006

Re the May 10 article, “In Other Words,” may I offer a revised translation to authors Kareem Abu-Zeid ’03 and Ivan Eubanks *05:

No Star in the Sky

No star in the sky
No prophet’s voice
No face submissive to the moon

He arrives
A pagan spear
Assaulting the written word
Presenting his bleeding wound
     to the sun
An unadorned stone
Praying to the void
Embracing a weightless world


Lawrenceville, N.J.
