Literature of the night

By Roya Hakkakian
October 25, 2000
The Iranian


Each night

In bed

Upon the pages of our sheets

We write stories


Each face

A new character

Each toss each turn

A new line


Few faces linger

From pillow pillow

Chapter to chapter


And sometimes

They surprise

By uttering the unexpected

..........--An unpredictable turn

Or by what we discover

In us

In their absence

In the ominous chill

....................of an endless bed

In the flatness the pages suffer

Upon their departure



We wake up to a new face

..........A welcome cameo

Or perhaps even more:

The protagonist of a short story


And always

We return

To the familiar

..........--Our life's major work.
