Eating death_ poem by : ghadah kamal

Hanging human paintings .

Eyes nailed and mouths open.

The stomachs are empty except  from hunger .

They look at him with his tousled beard and his vague eyes .

And here he is, with the  decadent belly, pouring a cup that was tasted like some Playful thing .

And he look for the girl  that escaped from looking up.

She speaks in ecstasy with a loud voice  While she standing    in the middle of the stage ,

She said :

Look up

You’ll find her  encased in gold,

Her hands play the Symphony of Death,

Her voice is a funerary opera.

Nude dancing
On the yard that  made from  Human viscera .

She approaches them and start to  drink  what is flowing from their mouths To become drunk and tampering at night to suck  the Drowned breath .

She gasping towards war ,

Eating  death,
Long live death,
Long live death.

control them like wooden dolls.

If they deny her  she  is lost,

And if they bow down to her, she will swell .

she appear colorless to those who survived from looking up.

silence.
Break.
Music.
Explode and sing with  Marilyn Manson voice
(sweet dreams are made of this)

She loves big asses  and precious breasts.

A lesbian with faces injected with Exile .

Their shoes made  from Hanged crocodiles.

Their bags made from  thirsty skins.

When they speak, the lice come out of their mouths .

The Lice is her clan.

They mumble with her chatter in the night and the ends of the day.

In her isolation  she  draw

a cloud of cockroaches
Wings and  dead butterflies.

she Bloating
So the frogs tumble over the heads that  looking upwards …

Confused in the pub.
The cheetah laughs and laughs
Security forces enter the bar
Explosion
ash
silence
The concert ended
