Cave - Poem by Ahmad Shiddiqi

(dedicated to Georgia Girl)

I sit down and watch Oprah program
Tenderly thousands of torches fly high
Who’s embracing homeless children?
Mermaids seduce iceberg to melt down
Fountains of Frankfurt smile to us
My best regards to blind ravens

(inspired by Rolling Stones’ Start Me Up)
