"White Day" A visual poetry by Negar Behbahani


"White Day" A visual poetry by negar behbahani.
Strong visual interpretation. Moments captured which beyond explanation of words, yet it throws metaphor which visually engaged with words.

you always raise your hand
a shouting sound comes from
the dead-end alley

my mother repents;
my sister is not at home
she likes dead-end alleys

the folks look over furtively;
after that day in the dead-end-alley,
you have turned to crimson;
i tell my sister
the dirt of the dead-end alley has preserved
my footprints and the blessed dried blood

the folks look over furtively;
you always raise your hand and
your anger subsides.

my mother is repenting;
you bring her to the dead-end alley and
stick her to the corner of the same wall
i can still see her traces on the wall
