Their Beginning C.P. Cavafy
Their illicit pleasure was consummated.
They rose from the mattress and quickly dressed without talking.
Separately, secretly, they leave the house; and as
they stride a bit anxiously in the street, it seems
as if they suspect something in them betrays
the kind of bed they lay in a short time ago.
Yet how the artist’s life profits.
Tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the strong lines
will be written whose beginning was here.
