By Tabish Nawaz


Sin bravely
Err too many times
Searching, uproot the garden
Sleep in the ruins, resigned.

Soak up the night
Within your eyes
Let the sun sink
Within your depths.

Sieve the stars from the sky
Sip the oceans dry
Take the poison
Do your last rite

Not all corners
Of the river, shimmer
Some are dark
And remain forever.

Row your boat there and drown
Let the darkness fill the emptiness
For the inner fire to light up
The void within to shine.
