Night Letter Q

ق
qaf,
the beginning of pen;

write a letter to her,
write a letter to him,
write rings of the deadly mountain pass,
write opium poppy bloom, write the lapis,
write four chambers, rooms the bloody bloom
of your heart, aorta, veins
write your blood type on your skin,
write rose petals, pomegranate
the black storks’ return
write desert, write filthy possession, jealousy,
sand, write anxious,
return, return, return,
write despair,
the glare, the stare, the stare,
write, write, write,
write Afghanistan.
