Gasham Najafzadeh
 
THE BATTLE, THE BOOT AND DEATH
 
War is an expression of feelings,
the song of the bullets an artistic style,
the soldiers a rapid succession of thoughts
and blood the fearsome silence of a minute.
 
I once looked at the boot
of a dead soldier,
still not cold inside.
It stood straight up
in remembrance of feet.
Boots are what tell us most
Of the death of a man.
That is why the wedding-ring
on the trigger-finger
begs the finger every time:
I implore you, please ,
don’t push me against the metal.
The soldier’s grief in the trenches
is best asked of the foot.
At times, the dirt sticking to the boot
is the mark of tension inside.
In a word, the boot
Is the most mournful picture
of the absence of a man.
 
A PARK
 
It is as this park
is a painting
hanging from the collar of the city.
The benches are green
and the people on them,
especially the young boys and grils,
are its forest dreams.
The winds of time have welded them
tightly onto the benches.
A woman has kept her balance,
holding her child by the hand.
Look! That gril, a student perhaps,
has held firmly on with two hands
to the thoughts in her heart
and remains standing.
The trees too still stand.
If you think about it
these trees were planted
with human looks.
