You can persuade someone to look at your face, but you can't persuade them to see the beauty therein.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“إن المرحلة المسماة عند المشتغلين بعلم النفس (عبادة الأبطال) هي مرحلة مرتبطة بالمراهقة، فهل تعكف المجتمعات غير الناضجة على عبادة أبطالها مثلما يفعل المراهقون، بدلا من مواجهة واقعها والتعامل معه وتطويره؟”

I don't want to be reminded of my childhood bed.”
Ani Baker, Handsome Vanilla

Louis Yako
“[Silent Messages 2]
She sat to rearrange the contents of her disorganized handbag
At the crowded bus terminal
When she lifted her head for a short interval,
Her eyes caught a young couple kissing, touching, and hugging
In a performative and exaggerated manner...
When the couple noticed her,
The young woman gave her a mean and malicious look as if asking:
Are you jealous of all the love I am surrounded by?
She returned the look with a sly one as if responding:
The love that exaggerates in displaying itself in public
Is either immature, dead, or dying…

[Original poem published in Arabic on December 5, 2022 at ahewar.org]”
Louis Yako

Craig D. Lounsbrough

Romain Gary, The Gasp
