ibrahim nasrallah
omnia amin & rick london <trans.>



Eleven at night

Books for bringing on sleep,
a drizzle of sleep.
The little ones go on a daring hunt for dream-horses
and the lusty wind invades sails
and pounds the ships.
Fidgeting in a nearby bed
a woman yawns:
I am tired of this day, Hassan!
