Something Graceful And Decent....

a poem
actually is a landmark
to a feeling

something happened
and you have no guts
telling it like
a story where the
characters have
vivid dialogues

you are torn
between clarity and
isolation
between that someone
who a while
ago has been stoned and
ostracized
and that important figure
who lies
with admiration
skilled in metaphors
knows how to arrange the
furniture
against the backdrop of
chaos

one poem is a yesterday
the one who was with you
cannot tell if he was
there

you cover a mask with a face
you hide the mole with hair
you give birth to another world
within a world

you write this poem
and you forget whether you have written it
by accident you
meet it again, (was it at the bar or at the
flea market? was it in egypt or israel?)

it smiles at you
gives its real name and tells you

it happened. this is what happened.
continue pretending.
the poem does not betray.
it keeps the fear within.
and what you like most is this:

it hides noise. exudes beauty.
never forgets. but stays graceful
and decent.
