THE STONE / Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

 
Poem by Ibrahim Honjo
 
 
 
THE STONE
 
They never asked me
For my name
They wanted my identity card
Or its number
I did not have one
I said Stone
They laughed
Asked me where I was from
From the stone – I said
They asked for my age
Twenty pebbles – I answered
And showed them gray spotted pebbles
They are opening their hearts to me
I am closing the doorway on the invisible wall
Which divides us
I am going away
