Emu Getachew Poems
Conversation With Jo
We can talk for hours and laugh in between
He respects my words as much as I respect his thinking
There we were choosing human characters from an article
Intrinsically we both chose a man who lavish in infidelity
however insane we both agreed separately
that this simple quest for human character
is not something that we should take casually.
He said, well social norm for the greater good
Even though, I respected his thinking,
I had to examine my own stand
Norm! I said to him with all due respect,
I despise that word for what it represents
I feel ...
For Those Eyes Only!
Intense in their color, tempting in their shapes
those almond eyes of yours, clandestine in their place
a glimpse is all I need to satisfy my hunger
to waltz with desire and to intoxicate my soul.
