Talk to me
Write a word
on a paper or on the very table.
on the floor or on the sky.
Write a word on a wall.
open someone's mind
and drop it in there
like a seed.
and they'll heed.

شيء عن السعادة
ْكذبوا , ان السعادةْ
كتبت : ان السماء
أمطرت في ليلة الأمس ضفادع
يا صديقي , سرقوا منك السعادة
في حبال الكلمات
ليقولوا عنك : مت
ليبيعوك مكاناً في السماء
آه ما جدوى البكاء
أنا خجلانُ محمد
سرقت منا السعادةْ
و أنا رغم العذاب
في طريق الشمس سائرْ
زرعوا الليل خناجر
ان سقف الليل ينهار عليهم
و حذارِ أن تخون

I remember a time in Baghdad when the pungent smell of decomposing bodies was pervasive. Dead bodies littered the streets for days, even weeks before Iraqis dared to bury them. “We couldn’t come out, but we had to,” says Ja’ffar, … Continue reading
I concede that there are a handful of detainees in Gitmo that are die-hard and unrepentant terrorists who deserve the unmitigated impact of the law. As I have indicated in a previous article, the majority of the detainees are innocent … Continue reading
