Venom And Loss
By Omar Sabbagh

The look in the eyes may haunt you.
The face: a tissue of cheek and mouth
Speaking of you to your utter south.

The anger here is rich, a slippery strong-house
Whose currency sends you
To your utter south…

The sneer’s a venomous idiom,
A bone-snide glare
Through the vacant grimness
Of what that stare
Sees in the boxed secret within you.

The fear,
The fear that smuggles itself upon me,
Faced by that face, like an apple-less tree,
Like venom and loss where venom
And loss are bossed
by venom.
A demon
Inhabits this grey space of dots. No sun
Has ever lived/has ever smiled upon
This place,

Where a face
Tells the tale of a rancid hate

Without former love

عواء
أرضي يباب
لا روح فيها
سكنتها الذئاب!
