Zaynab Akbar Skin Poems

  • 1.
    If home was a smell
    It would smell like aftershave and peanut butter and jam
    It would smell like
    Spices, sweet and salty; taste buds ringing
  • 2.
    My heart was a graveyard before you came
    Your arrival was violently gentle
    So aggressively you made my barren land your own;
    You took my dead trees and breathed life into them as you did me

Ernest Dowson Poem
Villanelle Of Sunset
 by Ernest Dowson

Come hither, Child! and rest:
This is the end of day,
Behold the weary West!

Sleep rounds with equal zest
Man's toil and children's play;
Come hither, Child! and rest.
