MAGNOLIA / Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

 

MAGNOLIA

You are a Magnolia from rainy clouds
With half of the head in pink
And half in yellow

You are a fishhook for open eyes
Your legs are in torn shoes
And hands on your back

I said – I saw you somewhere
You turned into despair

I offered you my heart on a platter
And my soul at the knees
I offered you my rough hands
Cheese and ham sandwich
Blueberry tea
And a red apple
You refused
Your green frozen eyes
Were killing this day with greenery
It was horrible
Could we be friends –
I asked
You turned your head and went away
And went away
And went away

Ibrahim Honjo, From my Book “Enigma from the Stone” 2010
