converfession iii

converfession iii

where can one look for peace?
round the corner from prosperity
prosperity is peace’s neighbor?
no, there is an empty plot of land
a no prosperity-no peace zone
with barbed electric fences
guarded by ferocious hirsute men with dogs 
carrying a rectangular object 
wrapped in silk around their necks
a dog eared book?
or a parchment on rituals? aerobics?
nobody can dance with pricked toes
and the beard gets in the way 
that empty plot of land is a cemetery
to bury joy and happiness?
that is for another day
