SURVIVAL / Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

 
Poem by Ibrahim Honjo
 
 
SURVIVAL
 
You come down to the spring
to fetch water
 
I send doves of peace all over the world
with my right hand
 
a ladybug is flying towards you
it will be a wedding party or they say it looks like one
 
someone out there is planning a new war
 
behind thick scenes
someone is making a movie
 
give me a sip of water to come back to life
walk by me proudly
with your head inclined slightly to the right
 
I swallow the last drop of saliva
to slake my dry throat
 
it seems to me
that everyone looks after himself
