FROM: STANDING WHILE WE DIE

Poem No.: 107 النص العربي: لا يوجد


Book of the defeated man:

In you let me write

one red letter that plants

green sadness leading to crystal joy

so that a song comes dancing forth

dressed in elf's clothing

***

Book of the fallen man:

You know what it means to a man

to live without song

live his wedding without feeling joy

live without a sky that knows him

his life ignored, address unknown?

***

Book of the future:

Set down the history

of our love of our land

for the effective word

record a moon, record a child

record a branch that grows

out of a fighter's sacrifice

***

Book of the resistance fighter:

Flame comes from the beating pulse

rebellion from the vanquished heart

revival from the bleeding wound

and our message is still a river of moons
