When Exile Took Us By Surprise

When exile took us by surprise,
a surgeon ready-scrubbed
he treated us with scalpels
cleansed us of the dream tumours in our organs,
and pushed us into the last scene of the shadow theatre
in order that we perform for him our secondary roles
Who are we? Fury of a blind man
being led by a thread of loss,
dice thrown on the night's page
without even an echo of their
rolling.
