Slave

 

After a war

I was captured

with the chains

like my braid

 

I came from the North

on a horseback

for booty

 

on the slave market

my sealed lips

never opened

 

with the voice of a merchant

my body scattered into

hands of strangers

 

I waited so that my owner

unchains me

into a desolate dream

 

his eyes went down

to see me clearly

in the veil
