Colour Photograph

عبد الرحمن الماجدي 2

(Box: the Box Brownie)

In the box brownie of your head, sits the viper of your envy

swallowing the heedlessness of the road.

In the caves of your mouth, prison guards

are melting the truth in the acid of speech.

Your paper horses are lost on the road of your desolate spirit,

and your wooden God has lied to you

when you finished using certainty.

You run away from the photographer of forgetfulness

fearing he would enter you in the machine of absence.

Now you sit alone, on your last chair,

facing the deserted sea of your days.
