I wrote this almost 19 years ago when I read Shamloo's
speech in Germany entitled "I am the common pain, scream
me!" I sent it over to Adineh amagazine and asked
them to pass it on to Shamloo and thank him for his conscientiousness.
I was not
to publish it but they did (with minor changes) in their Norooz
1367 (1988) issue.
