Shahrzad / A Poem By: Zahra Abdi

Shahrzad!*

Barren

Thou infertile

Non,the miracle pill,non the bitter cure

The womb;

As if -bored pear,wrinkled,ambiguous,aimless-

Non,nine months

After unbearable one thousand and one nights

Restless,

Uninformed,

This repeated bored umbilical cord, chooked the throat of The City.

Miscarriage the story

And The City

That buried the exhausted secret of femininity.

*the poet inspired from “One Thousand and One Nights” and poetises today,s stories.
