Mansour Alajali The 2River View, 6.3 (Spring 2002)

Little Razan

The beautiful baby’s gone!
Some doctors would say brain trauma
Others would say encephalitis.
Whatsoever doctors would like to say
About the cause of breathlessness,
I, her father, would like
To cry my heart out.
Ours is our words
Words which are but bloody pointed hooves
Digging out remote rocks
In an absent horizon!
