Image - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki


In mirror my portrait
Mustache white, hair grey
My chin rests in my palms
Looking down, my elbows on table
I look at nude poster
Out of teens and golden, skin fair
Size perfect, her eyes sea; she is shaved
I smile; then I laugh, laugh out-loud
Crazy is my mood

On carpet of magic, I’m in air
Back decades

I ask her: “Cat is cat, why pussy? ”
“She’s woolly as I am.” She answers
But now shaved

I fly once again to Hejaz; to Islam
“Must remove body hair, under arms and elsewhere
Be clean and immune.” Islam says and orders.

She(old times) : “They’re stupid; they shave and circumcise.”

I am back with poster on table.
I smile; then I laugh, laugh out loud
Crazy is my mood.
“Time is mad, crazy; stupid with fashions.”

Superman, spider and Batman I’m soaring.
Once again Asia, Africa of old time, Indian piercing and hair cut
Now fashion everywhere with style

I return
In mirror I see me; portrait of a clown looking down
I wonder if a sad, happy one!
A big nose with make-ups
I’m laughing as before but flame like fire.
I pick up the poster, tear it up.
