Rahman Henry Poems
Someone came out of the mirror
in my lone bedroom and said:
Truth can be mixed with
Guile and guilt
Truth can be manipulated
Where struggle for freedom and democracy
Of a pretty woman, hidden somewhere in this world
Or in the dreams of a poet, yet to come;
I even don’t know how to jump
And never stood before a waterfall for real
But nowadays in my sleep
Suddenly the sawmills achieve electric speed
No forest there, at all
A few scattered trees
Dancing and running— towards the mills
There is a river on the other side of the forest:
It can't shout louder than the crickets
