Absentia - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki
Her brain as big as a fly’s.
The victim is absent.
She sits as, elephant, a mountain
A parrot, nightingale, waves, ocean
Preacher, lecturer, a fish, whale.
She is a hyena’s self-image:
“He left us at the time of your birth…”
She washes girl’s brain, sets fire
Relations destroyed, bridge burns
Love weakens at its first
Then stinks and at last
Turns to hate.
What she says is nothing but made-up.
Either on intention, or is dumb.
Grape and family; clusters
Scatter when they fall
And the beads? ? ?
