Sami Al-Khalili Poem
You, ink t
titillate the past like
a dead bird’s wish.
Eulogies, accolades, panegyrics,
inside and out
like pillows’ feathers
and sweat of
Dreams, stupors, reveries,
on paper render sense,
t h e c o l o r f u l s e n s e s.
You, the undying spirits
reborn from archaic mildew
Akin to how we discovered fire
a flame, a light, a sun
reveals the shadow
of a pen.
