Poem :23-4-2014

A homo-phonic translation of a Persian poem:
by: Maryam Hooleh


Agree to bear the main rage of sincerity
Bare and allow labels flung, grazed
Careful but patient, heard raging, but dared to share
When I stare in, within
Snatch a long death, heard by each person
Why outrun it, why overtake?
Yes, re-fire the mainstay of partial self
While you chill, they are unfairly marked
Fear and sadness their diadem
