POEM OF THE DAY from Poem.com newsletter


Adeeba Shahid Talukder

What they call maniais a mindbrilliant in darkness.In you, Manhattan blinks.No one hears your terrorat the East River,how it beatsits head upon the rocks.When you dethroned godyou saw the worldtoo vast, too heavyto hold, and to learn thiswas to learn wrath.In these white rooms,no one comesto mourn your death,then rebirth.God, awakeall night:rest, rest.You are weary,and the world turns without you.
