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 ...
In The Morning
Many nights, i have helped unbutton your shirt
And let myself come between you and your skin
Yet in the morning, I feel the tears on my pillow
Fully understanding those trips of sorrow.
What more do you wish your highness
other than what I am able to give.
