Medea Kali


Question - Poem by Medea Kali

How to disassociate your body from your mind?
Kindly try and fill the void with your voice

First: Stop Writing

Unclench your teeth and relax your eyes
All joints heavy on the sheet
You try and try but your unrhythmic breaths keeps taking you up and down, up and down
The fly on your nose is biting,
Begging, pleasing teasing the smack of your finger tips

Second: Stop Writing

Your eyes are closed and you believe you are transcending
Ascending to the sky encircled by angels
By wide-moustached men and by the cries of children, happy…sad,
At last to be forgotten by masculine voices and flourishing features
On them pink-laced dresses with eyes of the innocent sky,
Pure tears of virgins unscathed

    I still don't quite understand the question. Actually, I seemed to see more observations and recommendations than I did questions. If there is a question,
    I am sure the answer is in the poem somewhere.
