  2. ((در مراسم اعدام یک زن))
    ((In the execution ceremony of a woman))
    محاکمه شدم, همه چیز تمام شد!
    و مادرم حتا برای مراسم خاکسپاری حاضر نبود!.
    I went on trial, every thing is done
    And my mother didn’t even attend for my funeral!
    رگ های دستم را سربریدند و بخیه زدند
    سکوت کردم…هیچ راه گریزی به کوچه های خوشبخت کودکی ام نبود
    و پسرانی که مرا در آغوش می کشیدند و دوچرخه سواری به من می آموختند…
    سال ها بود از ایران گریخته بودند!.
    They cut off my heads vessels in my hands and stitch them
    I was silent … there was no escaping to the happy alleys of my childhood
    And the boys that hugged me and taught me bike riding …
    Years ago fled from Iran!
    تنها کفن سپیدی را که نیمه برهنه بود بر شانه هایم آویختند!…
    و اعدامم کردند…
    محکوم شدم, مردم….
    و از آن پس
    هرگز مردی را عاشقانه در آغوش نکشیده ام!….
    They hung a white shroud that was half-naked on my shoulders!.
    And they executed me …
    I was sentenced, I was dead ….
    And after that
    I never hugged any man with love! …
    (شکوه بختیاری)
    (Shokooh Bakhtiari)
