Comments about Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi
The body of a bird in your mouth
Raw light spills from your eyes,
You must breach the horizon, once,
in order to wake up.
You must open window after window.
You must support the walls.
I let alphabets cling to me
as I climb the thread of language
between myself and the world.
I muster crowds in my mouth:
suspended between language and the world,
between the world and the alphabets.
I let my head
listen to the myth,
to all sides praising each other.
And I shout at the winds from the top of a mountain.
A Monkey At The Window
The little boy, playing in bed
while his wounded mother cooks,
is throwing little words and circles
out of the window.
(the whole world lights up)
he chatters excitedly - What can he see?
There's a monkey at the window -
behind the door!
