Kushtrim Thaqi - Leaves


and the leaf grows:
sometimes in sex legs
sometimes in four
sometimes in two
just so it can tell, something–
to something that tomorrow might be there.



The same human
who stared at the sky
when the sun went dark
2000 years ago
it’s the same human
who stares at the sky
when the sun goes dark– today!


On the other side of the road, houses!
Lined one after another
As though, they’re running from me.
Waving at me, wishing me luck
But not willing to join me.


What if earth chooses to release us and let us go away… How would it feel to fall up, to get crushed under the pressure of billion, trillion combusting stars!
