Madness Was Over! - Poem by abu tarek md tahsin

The fire had burned a hole
The fire had burned a hole
Into my belly
As I chucked my last shot of tequila
The world had gone calm
At 1 am
The neons by the street
Were shutting themselves off

Madness was over!

The city had died
Remorselessly

I picked my copy of Derek Walcott
Laid by the balcony
Counting stars

Bad luck
The sun came out too soon
