The Revelation Of St. John The Divine - Poem by Hayat Saif

-->

If you can, ventriloquist,
Make this blabbing city
Cry.
Mingle
Your tears
In the silence
Of the terrible.

Burn this wilderness
Of bricks and stone With the fire
Of the unknown Bones.
Let the heart-rending
Cry
Of truth and beauty
Ring aloud
Make this
Sham city
Tremble
Cry.
