TWO POEMS

by Kazim Ali

System Error
 

Quiver thin

Ash wind

 

Sudden tear

Hold you in

 

Season turn

Ash and I

 

Unbelieve

Tempest limb

 

Lidless vessel

Errant sin

 

To the self

No system

 

 

 

Screen Door

 

Banging

in the wind

 

Impossible

adornment

 

Sun strummed

I am played

 

and continue

to explain to air

 

my language

of screen and ore

 

improvised

over centuries

 

the kind of door

I always wanted

 

to be: closed

but open

 

 

Kazim Ali practices yoga and writes and teaches both.
