The world's end?

The Iranian

This poem was emailed to iranian.com on September 18, 2001

The world came to an end

a moment ago.

But here in this bit of green,

tucked away from fears

you can search for years

and never find a drop of


Maybe a minute's silence,

and then back to:

chasing cows down new asphalt

laughing children on a bus

so yellow it makes you smile

and all the while you are

searching for that drop of tear

to wear

that sign of fear

to share

Not here. You will not find it here.

Here the world came to an end

not a moment ago

but many a long forgotten year.
