A Land Of No Return - Poem by Ali Ahmad Said Esber
Even if you return, O, Odysseus;
even if spaces close around you,

in your bereaved face
or your friendly terror,
you will remain a history of wandering,
you will remain in a land of no promise,
you will remain in a land of no return.
Even if you return,
