The Day The Sky Fell Down - Poem by Melati Hussein

All the time the sky was falling down

There was no noise

Another heart unaware did not beat faster

Whilst just one pair of feet slipped on the cobbles

I did not have a privately paid Atlas

Tenacity, cannot hold mercury in hand

There are no prayers, be it Friday, Saturday or Sunday

They don’t know

And so the sky fell

Heavy as a wet, woollen blanket, sewn with lead

Suffocation was the cause of death.
