The Figures' Memory

============================= The Figures' Memory Arabic Poem by: Abdulsadah Al-Basri Translated into English by: Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk) ============================= The Day we devised oblivion We were canned in our memories And sent down by the clouds To body lust Our children slipped one after another From between our fingers And our women became wrapped in whispers And contempt So we reconciled With our dreams As the night abused us And the birds lay At the stops of our lives!!! -------------- Translated into English by: Em. Prof. Inaam Al-Hashimi * Abdulsadah Al-Basri is a poet from Iraq
