Love and Cheer in Tight Embrace

By Saba Mahjoor

the spicy potatoes
the black blanket on the floor
dozing in and out of careless folly
the milky sleep

the mild heat
blazing blue sky
candy floss clouds
the gentle breeze
trees swaying a last secret

green eyes
blue veined hands
a kiss on the lips
a prickly beard
sticky chocolate mess on fingers

vacant eyes
a blank heart
a troubled soul
the constant vociferations
of an unquiet mind
