This city is a sad play,
with the most bone-chilling
background music.

From my balcony,
you can hear the prayers
of near mosques,
listen to pigeons claiming
the sky as their own,
notice the hissing
of the shy spring wind,

and watch a five year old
rummaging the garbage for
something that can mute
his hungry belly.
