Now by Fiza Bedi


Art by Bolton Coit Brown

Halt the winds --

Close the windows, now


Bear the onslaught --

of tyrannical abuses, now


Pack up your things --

And step out the door, now


Take a rest --

In the front lawn, now


Spread-eagled --

on green grass,now


Shed a tear --

Help a flower grow, now.


Mangled limbs --

Inspect damage, now


Tell the sky --

It can crash down, now


Watch the wrist-watch --

Dictate time, now


Time -- now,

The interval --

Between

A bird's chirping


Step out now --

And pull down,

Benign --

Sunshine now,


And call for God --

Call for Hell,

It is time now.
