I Know A Man, Yehuda Amichai
I know a man
who photographed the view he saw
from the window where he made love
and not the face of the woman he loved there.
Wow this is so profound in so many ways, I look forward to reading more from you, Good job 🙂
Does this mean the man loves the view more than the woman?
That is how I understood it. Amichai is a Jerusalem poet so it was clearly quite a view. I thought it apt in light of things.
You could look at this one in a number of ways … the best writing is like that, isn’t it?
He’s an astonishing poet. What other meanings do you see there?
