The longest war
(for Mina Abdollahian)


June 23, 2006

The longest War standing between us

Hangs like an impossible breath through immovable cracks in the concrete

Through the eyes filled with pure holes

The longest War standing between us lifts me into directionless windows

Facing the vulturing eyes of other music-less and humbled windows.


The longest War standing between us has an enormous and impossible flesh

A curve of immense unreasoning and surprises

Silence again

Descending over unseen skies

With a pinch of music to

Perfect two souls dancing in the darkness --

Over the fresh and pure earth beneath us.
