Shataw Naseri


Forget about it!



forget about it!

let's lie with each other and lie to each other

and everything will be well and not true ......

and we will be there playing with our dreams

and telling our stories of the truth

and truth will be there, silent and praising our stories

the stories which are truer than the truth

and we will be there glad and thrilled

forget about it!

let's create our world and and tease the true world

and wait for this passive and tyrant world

to sweep our truth and tell its stories vainly

no one will believe it since our stories are there

reflecting the truth which everyone would believe

forget about it!

let's lie with each and lie to each other.




Calumny and passion was their sect


Calumny and passion was their sect

And they roamed in streets

And roared everywhere

in dark garments

with a whip in their hand

And said, "we are holy"

And shouted, "we are saviors of the world"

And they lacerated humanity and peace

And seized everything and everywhere

And spread poverty and indolence

And said, "we are holy""

And shouted, "we are saviors of the world"

maybe the shadows of humanity they are

And maybe the ghosts of holiness they are

Ay! and who knows strained humanity from its shadow

And who diagnoses shameful holiness from its ghost

and "how can we know the dancer from the dance"




they told me "i am insane"


i told them 'I AM insane"

i was insane and they were sane

and no difference between them and me

we were the same

swirling in the absurd

and teasing the being

and tearing the philosophy

of sanity and insanity

screaming and chanting

and they told me "i am insane"

and i told them "I AM insane".
