THE CAFE’S BIRD BY SUZAN A’ALYOOWAN

TRANSLATED BY: H.I. AL-MUHAIRI

————-

Your place in the cafe
is not empty.
After you left,
a bird came
and sat in your corner.
I contemplate him
from afar,
just as I used to contemplate you,
as he is smoking his cigarette
and wandering with his lost eyes
in the smoke.
