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 --


A bird's chirping

Step out now --

And pull down,

Benign --

Sunshine now,

And call for God --

Call for Hell,

It is time now.
