TRIO 

(triptych)

 

 

COMMANDO


he
came from the land of the rising suns
with black flags in the eyes

he
came from the land of hard silence
to
the land of rattling bazaars

dumb machine-gun from the tower

screamy calls to prayer



SHEPHERD


he broke

the light

the dusk vomits
a dazzling jet

wrapped in wool
he shivers from fever



ASSASSIN


he stood up
and struck

blood burst
out of the hole

then he again
laid down in the dark
