I Fly Away

 (Translation)   More alive than death buries me Not so lost that nothingness wins Ardent enough as a torch Well safe through my soul I fly away, where the nature promised.   Heavier under the sceptre of the Devil Less burdensome than the suspicion of rumour Mature enough to convince me only nothing ...

Public executions in Iran

When it comes to number of executions, Iran has the dubious distinction of being number two on the list of countries with highest number of death penalties, right after China, according to many online sources including the Guardian. Given the fact that the Chinese population is almost 18 times that ...

L’Aube Barbelée

Maillons débouclés Cercles de la vie déchirés Sang ne charrie que rancœur imbibé Même dans mes veines les plus cachées.   La nuit, pente du départ Où l’on pousse l’aube barbelée Aux déclics perpétuels des fusils Les tireurs la guettent au pied du rempart.   Les fresques sortent de leurs cavernes Aux ...
