Once a young woman asked me,
“How does it feel to be a man?”
And I replied,

“My dear, I am not so sure.”
Then she said. “Well aren’t you a man?”

And this time I replied,

“I view gender as a beautiful animal
That people often take for a walk on a leash,
And might enter in some odd contest
To try to win strange prizes.

My dear,
A better question for Hafiz
Would have been,

‘How does it feel to be a Heart?’

For all I know is love,
And I find my heart Infinite
And everywhere!”
