Eileen & The Wind - Poem by Atef Ayadi

The wind
And Eileen
Both, blow hard on me.
It is the fall
Anyway.

The wind is predictable
When it comes
When it goes away
When and where it hits
It comes from the west
Or from the south.

Eileen is a Northern
Type of wind.
Hot and icy
That took off my mind
And un-earthed my skin.

Both are two natural phenomena,
And
Both are unstoppable.
If I can ignore the wind,
I can not avoid Eileen.
