What Do You Want? - Poem by Atef Ayadi
What you want
and what else you want?
What type of made in china
What type of being you are?
What type being you want to be?
What is impossible
What can you do?
What can you possibly do?
–I am sure you can-
What can you make from yourself
for your own sake?
The lilac knows what it can do;
Where it can spread, grow, and go,
and precisely how far
and what amount
and how much sunlight sun it need
in order to flourish and grow.
The where, how, and when are simple commodities.
knows its color
and the percentage of everything in this universe.
What do you want?
I will tell you What
I can possibly
And I am what I do.
