The Tears of Fish by Suzan A’alyoowan

THE TEARS OF FISH BY SUZAN A’ALYOOWAN

TRANSLATED BY: H.I. AL-MUHAIRI

—-

He places his ear on the seashell of her heart
to listen
to the sea.
With closed eyes
he sees her,
a child drawing with her tears circles in the water of his soul,
asking,
“Do fish cry
like we do
in the depths
when they are lonely and sad?”
