The rasa of nothingness


September 29, 2006


My lover leaves the last breath of our injured faith
in the ruins of his conquered lands.

Regally unforgiving,
as if death
has never befallen kings.


I will be reading poetry at Claremont Branch Libraryin Berkeley, CA, (Saturday October 21, 2-5 PM). In persian and free entrance. Hope to see you all there.
