The Black Sky - Poem by Naveed Akram
The black sky inhibited the rays of the sun,
Or so I thought of the stars that ran amuck.
These smaller wonders sparked ideas
As they appeared like shadows, and I had won
Their favours to the very letter.
My nights swallowed with fortune,
Swelling up within the limbs
And counting the gold that it owned
And translated into coins of the higher kindness.
The pain of the night spun and swooped
So that teeth of the black sun were found
By those with the funds to last and deliver.
I think of some stars as suns,
But do sons always obey their fathers
Or are they little dwarfs?
