Seniors’ Residence

Poem By Nassy Fesharaki

It’s a cell, where I live
Both room-size and building
It is walls, walls and walls
As if cell in the hive
With one door, that is all
In the halls, corridors
Doors open like Orwell’s
The nineteen, eighty four
The smells and the sounds
(Mostly same)

In this jail I am tied
With my age and its chain
My crime is my love
For my child, everyone

I’m a fish; I’m a bird or deer
I am caught in this net
The harder I try
The sooner I will die
But better dead to live
In the hands of this life

With no brain life is shame
Rulers want that the same
Not of me
I’m sorry
I’ll be gone far before
Hunter’s hand touches me

Why I Am Not A Christian

About a decade had passed
Bertrand Russell had written
Why I Am Not a Christian
In 1957

Hands In Air

Hands in air

In news see some tanks
Next to them the soldiers

Child Birth

Child birth

She knew everything
About us; awake or deep asleep.

So Sexy

So sexy

Shameless she stands there in open
And throws her clothes in single…

Eyes And Nose

Eyes and nose

With impacts I came home
In the heat, cold no more.

My Pass

My pass

Have stamps in my pass,
Lecturers, orators
