Treasure Island

(Dec 29 / Iran)

A new week

A new week

Cabinet of toothpaste, tooth brush, razor and after shave
Puffy & sleepy is the face; yawning a morning with tear
Water is running, hands are lazy; hard to bear undone hair
Looking at the teeth in mirror, again working day, disaster

Taking forms, as male goat’s right after smelling own urine,
Come to sight, look-alike of camel chewing seeds of cotton
On their own, and brain, Marco Polo, borderless all around,
Lips and the mouth, with the paste and bubbles, like camels’
Footprints on the dunes, long shadows of a dawn and a dusk
After jets, curly hair, magic-girl in tower for prince, he climbs
To cover, to dry; comb the hair and cologne, new day to start

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
