Today I’m out wandering, turning my skull

Today I’m out wandering, turning my skull
into a cup for others to drink wine from.
In this town somewhere there sits a calm, intelligent man,
who doesn’t know what he’s about to do!

Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

from Open Secret: Versions of Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks / Translated by John Moyne
