No more
tears to cry
 
thirst and hunger
have calcified my ducts
and the pain of crying
 
succumbs
to the pain of dying
               in the dust

               unnourished
               like a stone

                  embedded
             in a dry wadi

 

                            the earth is thirsty 
                                  it too is hungry

                                     a n d   c r i e s
  

                                            how do I
                                       feed myself

                            in a land of plenty
                               that has nothing  .  ?

a land

           where
           you can’t rest
               your search
  
 

                                  ‘c a u s e .  .

                                   if you rest

                                            you

                                   s t a r v e  .  !

a land :

where
the corrupt      
         
                is . .
          
          corruptible
beyond measure
 

                             I  s a y  .  !


                             let them bleed

                                              from

                             the end
   
                            of   a   r o p e
