A poem by Mai Ammar

Open the windows

Let the air out

Inhale your sins

To exhale the act

Rape the living soul out of that girl

And skin her beauty

Cut off a mother’s breast to entertain yourself

By looking at a starving child

Poke holes in the lungs of a swimmer

And watch him drown

Break the fingers of a pianist

And listen to the melody of his cries

Eat the universe in front of the poor

And smile at their misery

Take out organs from the living

To withhold them from the dead

Now you..

Let the devil rest

Start over...

Not with them marionettes

But with yourself

The sinner
