painting Kasimir Malevich

 

sombre
wind whistles

vibrating
bodies burn
in communion

chaos cheats
choir once
again

bourj al-barajneh

paris

palmyre

dancers of dead
follow
fountains of blood

names
numbers
now

night
this
night

howl
in terror"s tower

built
before babel

for baal

ba'al

take us
back to sound

of sewing
skin
back

fury's
secret

baal
bring bird
on shoulders
screeching

golden
afternoons gone

world no more

(than that)

let cacophony
of birds wing
flutter against flesh

wounded
we sing

alone
we come
to choir

secret safe
behind our teeth
but speech difficult

walk towards us

ribbons in hair

book in hands

living
souls
sing song
clouds ô clouds

ancient hours
open

open

open up
between feet

dance deliberately

without word
without

fear
tree of birds
crying

fear
tree of birds
crying

wash away
wash
away with
saliva

sister
& brother

heritage
hurting

hurting
beyond

belief
border

border

belief

learn
language of water

under skin
learn

now
learn

learn
now

go
to secret

become

ash
alphabet
shelter

secret
succumb

cough blood
outside gate
in garden

go with ghost

exchange tongues

count & count
again

place pebbles
in one pocket

then another

count pebbles
in palm

unfolding under horizon
