Poetry

Smelly stream

January 12, 2005
iranian.com

Open the door to a thought
And get lost
In the warm folds of its possibilities

Open your heart to another
And listen to its reflection
On a mirror of shared feelings

Open your eyes to the beauty
Of a smelly stream brimming with trash
That still manages to keep its flow

Turn around and look back
See if you can find a regret
Worth holding

Then, roll it up in a ball,
Real small,
Flick it to the sky and watch it disappear.
