Blank - Poem by Nizar Sartawi

Blank
Nizar Sartawi

He's asking us
to fill the blank
(.........)
Is he frivoling
Or mocking?

And how to fill the blank?
(.........)
And what is it that fills the blank?
(.........)

What's the blank?
A frenzied whirlpool swallowing man
a black hole gulping space and time.
