WRITERS I AM SMITTEN WITH
I am currently smitten with Maram Al-Massri’s A Red Cherry on a White-Tiled Floor. So much so, that I am in bed at 3:30 in the afternoon reading her beautiful work.
Here is an excerpt:
12. A minute on my left
side,
a minute on my right
side,
a little on my back,
a while on my stomach,
I spin in emptiness.
Cold on my bed.
Cold in my dreams.
The thieves of sleep
have raided my night.
One of them
pitied me
and left me the morning
shining on the table.  

WRITERS I AM SMITTEN WITH

I am currently smitten with Maram Al-Massri’s A Red Cherry on a White-Tiled Floor. So much so, that I am in bed at 3:30 in the afternoon reading her beautiful work.

Here is an excerpt:

12. A minute on my left

side,

a minute on my right

side,

a little on my back,

a while on my stomach,

I spin in emptiness.

Cold on my bed.

Cold in my dreams.

The thieves of sleep

have raided my night.

One of them

pitied me

and left me the morning

shining on the table.
