Songs of Broken Clouds

Updated: May 21, 2021

I cannot recollect now

how once you translated my life into death

and death into rains and rains into tears

I hear the gossips of shining crowds

within the invisible incorrigible

layers of wrongs that play lamenting

the old deaths still alive and progressive

I cannot but touch the vertical lines

of non-stop vacation that makes me hear the tale

of fish-ache-waves of reddish soul

the uranium jokes flying over the toxic mirror

I do respect the emotions of trees

the tears of flowers

I learn from the songs of broken clouds swimming

and singing in the bloods of ravishing simile of rains
