Wael Almahdi


When the dream dies
you’re soaked with resentment
at every table.

A new kid
in an empty playground
at high noon.
No companion, no quarter
the crickets gloat.

Death has terrible manners
it never knocks.

A forever sunset.
The waves come on too strong, the wind a bit too forward.
We abandon the shell search.
