Altair Laahad


Silence - Poem by Altair Laahad

Your silence of a time bomb
when you are escaping the cacophony
of a band clearing the path to your tomb
hides the tic toc of the lurking explosion;

You crouch as the naked ostrich
you sink your head in the Sahara sand,
you eschew the bang and clang
of the congregation around;

There, you forge endurance from the guts of a dumb universe
as your numb genius is ready to rise
