"For the ugly woman, poetry is lipstick and pomade. "Boris Hristovby Stanka Pencheva traslated by Ann Wood

"For the ugly woman,
poetry is lipstick and pomade. "Boris Hristov
I do not use lipsticks or pomades
to embellish my soul.
My hand on the other leaves leads her
and by human error every time.
Instead of a hammer, I'm often an anvil -
more flattened than street mud.
For the victim I do not expect a reward,
for others I am filled with pity.
And if some fine, urban ladies,
in poetry are looking for their bore,
I wanted a small trail to leave,
that life has passed through man.
