    Arsiema Berhane tells truth, but truth is distressing to the pampered, indifferent mass consciousness of the West. Arsiema's poetic skills are second to none, but the message and intense emotion of the verse astound and humble the comfortable dwellers in (temporary) asylum of consensus reality.

    I have been going through your poems and am impressed by the diversity of subject matter and the different techniques and personae you experiment with. Nearly all the poems are well crafted and tightly written with no wasted words and the situations and subjects well and thoughtfully observed. I think they show real talent. Keep them coming :)

Best Poem of Arsiema Berhane

A Dog With Six Names

Not just any dog, but our dog.

It’s funny how everyone wanted to
give him a name, but each name was not the same.

My other younger sister called him Fofi
A tribute to our late dog
I didn’t really mind ‘bout the name
Doesn’t it sound a little like coffee?
My younger brother called him Undertaker
Name of his favorite wrestler
I really loved this name, but mother was like
“Come up with something else, this is ...

I'M Stupid

I found him sitting there
On his only and lonely chair
Lots of papers on the floor
A candle of light on the table
And Beethoven's poster was on the door.
It looks so scary, cus the shadow of
The vodoo talisman has fallen on it.

He was writing, my friend
