Then I was back vanishing inside me
into that balloon of loneliness
reflecting a citadel of solitude
an ebony castle of remoteness
As if that morning
that road
conspired against the desire to belong
Thus a man threw a Pepsi can from his car window
the radio ad begged audience for a spare cornea
the lake's foul breath saffocted the humming bird

Laila Neihoum 2007
