Palestinian Valentine

Poet stick to what is fanciful
it’s closer to the spiritual
the pale white sky for example
like the first coat of paint
you can still see the blue
in places underneath while in another
part of the field the sky is sapphire
as on the first days but then
an ambulance tears through
the scene pursued by accidents
of all kinds and rivers of blood
the world is shrinking
to a small forgotten town
to the few who actually
want to live in peace
