The Blast And The Singing Rat - Poem by Najib Altawell

The blue
The orange
And the singing
Rat
Tuning with
The shadow of
A dancing woman
Vibrating
Fat


Then


Chat
Chat
Chat


In ‘apartment’
Where no one knew
The meaning of time
Nor ‘can’ they hear the
Sound of bombing
Nor ‘they’ care
About
The devastating
Blast


Strangely enough
Loving songs
Always ‘come’
From
‘Baghdad’!


No time for your last
Prayer
The dust
The toxic fume
The rusted iron
Bar
The melting black
Tar
All
Under the skeleton of
A bombing
Suicide
Car
Accept nothing
But
To bleed slowly
As you are watching
Helplessly
The blue
The orange
In the
Iraqi
Sky
