I’m Not Interested in Crossing the Boundaries

An English translation of Muzaffar Karim's urdu poem Mujhe Sarhadein Paar Karne Ka Shouq Nahi 

I’m not interested in crossing the boundaries
But still
At times
I wish
Us to be birds

Crossing a handful of sky
Feather by feather

We’d come to our tree-house.

And in autumn
If reminded of our remembrances
Would go 

House-in that lamppost of the university
Under which, somebody, still today
With some books

Is waiting for someone.
