                                               A tomb of flowers


                                              King David put up


                                              For his son


                                              Abu Salam


                       


                                   And a heavy scent


                                             of fading roses


                                                    filled the air


                                                       with the sweetness


                                                        of death


 


                                                                               Like a 


                                                                               Carpet


                                                              Black orchids


                                                               In velvety bloom


                                                    Enclosed


                                       His body's dust


 


                    Like blood the poppy fields' purple


             Radiated red in the noon


     And filled the air with


               The mellow aroma of transience


 


(1994)
