The Blue Note - Poem by Ilham Ahmed

Infinite mothers

Walk with elongated love

Who dreams in orange


So near yet so far

Creator and Created

Display of taut quip


Two words: Love and Hate

Ambivalence is godly

But still who am I


It is me who speaks

Beginning Middle and End

I feel so I am


Inevitable

Death where is your victory

Both promise and threat


Similarity

Is not the same as sameness

Life is dubious


A long time ago

Humanity went crazy

Civilization






Existence rains in

Calm chaos of memory

Perpendicular


Leaning on a cane

A dog cut out of paper

I have no worry


That guy is finished

His goose is cooked all undone

A mother would know


Orange with charcoal

He is no longer alone

Let the wicked rest


It is not certain

That everything is certain

Rational skeptic


The show must go on

You cannot escape beauty

Children of the damned


The end of desire

Nirvana and the pish posh

I am still breathing
