Performed by: Hannah Nicholas, Julia Yang, Maya Cohon and Rebecca Reale Visuals: Kevork Mourad The Wind Will Blow Us Away by Forough Farrokhzad Translated by Sholeh Wolpé Inside my little night, alas, the wind has a rendezvous with the leaves; inside my little night, there is fear and dread of desolation. Listen. Hear the darkness blow like wind? I watch this prosperity through alien eyes. I am addicted to my despair. Listen. Hear the darkness blow? This minute, inside this night, something’s coming to pass. The moon is troubled and red; clouds are a procession of mourners waiting to release tears upon this rooftop, this rooftop about to crumble, to give way. A moment, then, nothing. Beyond this window, the night quivers, and the earth once again halts its spin. From beyond this window, the eyes of the unknown are on you and me. May you be green, head to toe— put your hands like a fevered memory in mine… these hands that love you. And cede your lips like a life-warmed feeling
