The Dead Boy - Poem by Saman Shahraki

My mother is looking to me
with a opened mouth
she feels I am the loneliest person now
-why don't you leave me?
I was a little blue boy
and a bicycle with same color
I years old
with some coins in my pocket
that were screaming
I've become naked!
Last night in a car accident
smashed body's silence
and bones were calling me: brother!
Bicycle is pedaling slowly
i see my pocket in the grave
is my sister!
sky's picture on my name
written on a tombstone
I will come back
if I can move the stone.
my sister is coming beside me
with a smile on her face
I am looking to my mother
with a opened mouth
I feel she is the loneliest person now
-cause i can't leave you!
