Boat of words

Furat Esbir

The roses steal all saliva from my mouth

My tongue is dead

while I was on the floor crying

I was reminded of the life I had been through

On the doors of memory

Between the clear and the rain    

I saw my self  

going into deep air

writing poetry, crying,

making a boat of words and sailing.
