black abaya, black-hearted man

I drink my black coffee
I wear a black abaya, black sunglasses, and black shoes

I get into a black car, with a black chauffeur
I watch the black asphalt all the way
I go a long way…. A very long way, to meet a man with a black, black heart.
( Saudi. 1995)

I drink my white coffee
I wear a white dress, white sunglasses, and white shoes

I get into a white car, with a white chauffeur
I watch the white clouds all the way
I go a long way … a very long way, to meet a man with a black, black heart.
( Lebanon. 2000)

I drink nothing
I wear nothing
I stay in bed
I read from a Quran on my lap
The black, black-hearted man still finds me.
( France. 2005)

    simple yet poetic and loaded with meaning.

    This one makes me think and relate each line over the title.

    Was it like a big brother all over you? Just asking.

    Great blog you have here.

    Have a great day.
