~ Artwork by the Syrian poet Adonis. The text is an assemblage of pre-Islamic writings which speak of peace and against oppression.
The road to Damascus is littered with arms;
dealers dodge bullet points in NY,
better suited than mooted –
Monger’s wage war on
packing Tommy’s hardware in MDF –
guns out, bodies in;
Beneath Hom’s rubble-strewn streets
incubators blink as infants slip
down humanity’s sink.
