Gaza Still Under Siege

In the state of siege, site time becomes space
Transfixed in its eternity
In the state of siege, ask space becomes time
That has missed its yesterday and its tomorrow…
The siege will last in order to convince us we must choose
an enslavement that does no harm, in fullest liberty!

Under Siege by Mahmoud Darwish

  • I bought a copy of Mahmoud Darwish’s “The Butterfly’s Burden” translated by Fady Joudah (2007) last year (i don’t know if it’s the same edition he will be signing at this event). Anyways, I wish i could have his signature on my copy! 🙁
