1. Disobedience

The stones, you say,
laugh at you at night,
so loudly you can’t sleep,
and the walls
become a widow’s veil
to shroud the silver moon.

The streets, you say,
twine serpents round your neck
that steal the air to breathe,
and the gates
stare at you at dawn
like sentinels of doom.

The waves, you say,
they ever call your heart
and whisper of the past,
but my name you say
as if it were

If I asked you for time,
would you dare
to disobey?
