After 'Longing, Belonging' by Hossein Valamanesh

The dwindling acres from here to there
And the yellow rose darkened
By crushed light
Is reason
Turned ageless within -.

You want to bark at the moon,
Peak perfect
Your upside-down
Cavatina
But - the handicapped

Past century's
On parole
Bumping into
Radio-active isotopes
That frequent

Our field's ill-gotten
Question marks
Despotically
Waving
'Hey, Joe!'

... No. I'll
Never
Make it
To
Sarajevo...
