Many cultures,
One place.”

“They want us to be afraid.
They want us to be afraid of leaving our homes.
They want us to barricade our doors
and hide our children.
Their aim is to make us fear life itself!
They want us to hate.
They want us to hate 'the other'.
They want us to practice aggression
and perfect antagonism.
Their aim is to divide us all!
They want us to be inhuman.
They want us to throw out our kindness.
They want us to bury our love
and burn our hope.
Their aim is to take all our light!
They think their bricked walls
will separate us.
They think their damned bombs
will defeat us.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that my soul and your soul are old friends.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that when they cut you I bleed.
They are so ignorant they don’t understand
that we will never be afraid,
we will never hate
and we will never be silent
for life is ours!”

“If I can’t be your love,
then let me be a simple brooch
so I may rest a while against your chest.
If I can’t be your love,
then let me be a forgotten coin
so I may rest a while against your thigh.
If I can’t be your love,
then let me be an unlit cigarette
so I may rest a while in between your lips.
If I can’t be your love,
then let me at least remain in these words
so I may rest a while in your thoughts.”

“I would rather lie facedown on the ground
and use my body as a bridge,
than stand proud and tall
and use my body as a wall.”
Kamand Kojouri

“One sip of this wine
and you will go mad with drunkenness.
You will drop your masks
and tear your clothes — destroying
everything that separates you from the Lover.
Once you taste the fruit of this vine,
you will be kicked out of the city of yourself.
You will forget the world. You will forget yourself.
I tell you:
you will become a madman
who wanders the streets looking for the Lover
once you drink this Wine of Love.”
Kamand Kojouri

“The first time I heard you laugh,
I only wanted to say funny things
so you would always be laughing.
You know what happens to chocolate
when you leave it out in the sun?
I’m that unfortunate chocolate
and you, you are the laughing sun.
For this reason, I am offering myself to you
not as a martyr or some selfless fool,
but as a self-indulgent moth
who actively pursues the light
without much fear for the flame.
The moth who revels in the heat
and declares:
Burn me.”

“Poetry is jealous of you tonight,
for as soon as I come
to pen a few words,
your perfume attacks me
in the most civilised manner
and I forget myself.
I forget the poem.
I forget the ...”

“If you wait until you find something to speak up for, something that you’re passionate about that concerns you and attacks your own beliefs, then eventually, when the day finally arrives, you might also find that you have forgotten how to speak.”
Kamand Kojouri

Jonathan Anthony Burkett
“I understand we all have our differences. But while learning about history I've read about white people coming together, Jews coming together, Spanish coming together, different cultures and religions understanding and coming together despite their differences. Slavery was never something that shocked me. What shocks me is how black people have not yet overcome the odds and we're such strong smart people. Why we can't just stand together?”
Jonathan Anthony Burkett

Kamand Kojouri
“I will speak of love
until you go mad
and join me
in my mad worship
of love.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“Let my silence grow with noise
as pregnant mothers grow with life.
Let my silence permeate these walls
as sunlight permeates a home.

Let the silence rise from unwatered graves
and craters left by bombs.
Let the silence rise from empty bellies
and surge from broken hearts.

The silence of the hidden and forgotten.
The silence of the abused and tortured.
The silence of the persecuted and imprisoned.
The silence of the hanged and massacred.

Loud as all the sounds can be,
let my silence be loud
so the hungry may eat my words
and the poor may wear my words.

Loud as all the sounds can be,
let my silence be loud
so I may resurrect the dead
and give voice to the oppressed.

My silence speaks.”

“The lover drinks
and the cup-bearer pours.
The lover thinks
but the cup-bearer knows:
love begets love.
Since this wine is love,
then this cup is love,
then this tavern is love,
then this life is love.”
Kamand Kojouri

Gillian Duce
“Just as sure as each knot on a fisherman's net does not physically connect so far as each knot forms continuous connection to make the whole -which works perfectly; know that in the broader picture of life, all things are connected, including you. Even when you feel otherwise disconnected from another - the whole always works perfectly.”
Gillian Duce, Blight in the Ocean

Kamand Kojouri
“I am humbled by the grace of God.
I am humbled by the beauty of this universe.
Humbled by others' kindness.
Humbled by life.
I drop down to my knees and give thanks.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“I see your pain
as clearly as I feel my own.
I will share your burden
so you feel it less.
Do not hate this world.
Do not hate these people.
I will share my hope
so you feel it more.
I want you to see our love
as clearly as I feel yours.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“The greatest thinkers
have attempted to find
who we are
where we come from
and why we are here
but the greatest enigmas to me
are how your hair is a lasso
that captures the stars
how your eyes are lakes
that drown my doubts
and how your skin is the sun
bursting all at once.
If I knew these answers
I’d know everything
for you alone
contain the entire universe.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Having drunk the dregs of Your Love,
I am intoxicated beyond recognition.
Now, I only pray for the nearness of You
so I may advance in my annihilation.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kamand Kojouri
“We are all lost,
so lost, vulnerable and insecure.
We are separated from love at birth,
we are separated from God,
from each other.
All we want,
all we yearn for
is to connect.”
Kamand Kojouri

Annabelle Blue
“«Devi vedere i colori di questa città» mi disse mentre già scendevamo la scalinata.
«Londra è colorata. C’è il rosso degli autobus, per esempio».
Mi afferrò la mano che aveva abbandonato per permettermi di scendere le scale e quasi mi trascinò per i primi passi.
«Devi vedere il verde dei parchi, l’azzurro del fiume, il rosa di certi tramonti… Londra è molto più di autobus rossi e taxi neri, vedrai cosa intendo»”
Annabelle Blue, One Love: un amore a Londra

Kamand Kojouri
“We call a story about love
a love story.
We call a poem about love
a love poem.
Well then, my dear, aren’t our lives
love lives?”
Kamand Kojouri

“One day she will be mine. I am telling you. I need to have her, and she needs me. She just doesn’t know it yet. There is no one in the world that could love her the way I could.”
Nico J. Genes, Reverie Girl
