Watching Bats - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Watching bats
Was my task today
In the red dusk
On the terrace
In the chill of
The roof
Under frown of the heavens.
I watched the bats
Smiling.
But they shrieked and
They screamed terribly
Disrespectful animal-birds!
Do you not
Respect a Poet-Seer who wills
To view and to think
But right through his brain
Send wave-currents
In shock and in speeds
That light has
That light breeds
And split the orgasm of thought
In to two
A duality that needed a single
Unity.
