a Serbian poet

A Serbian Poet. 

He was a poet; perhaps he still is, 
scribbling words
on the wall of a cell in Haag. 
A mass of hair, an unfinished 
symphony gloomily greying 
 in artificial light 
and will his hair ever feel the sensation of the wind 
tussling his tresses?
Once upon a time people called him Doctor, he was
A psychiatrist, prescribed valium to his patients,
he should keep doing this
but politics and power got in the way, 
he the president a dream that will never leave him.
A poet can’t handle the power, so let him write that
a thousand times on the wall of his cell.
