Best Poem of John Scully

A New Emptiness

I found yesterday
today,
through unlit corridors,
and saw catastrophies
tomorrow,
standing, waiting, still.

Read the full of A New Emptiness

The Soup Run

Last night it rained
and the night before
when the soup kitchen came.
Nice people those
who hand out food
and listen to us
moaning and groaning.

'At how unfair'
that people pass and stare.

'Never mind dear
drink up your soup
it's cold out tonight
you don't want a chill
we can't have you ill'.

[Hata Bildir]
