Death fertilizes me, the wound of longing, and the clouds of souvenirs


The remnants of conscience, the life of the coming pain, and the middle of the east


Ripple a self-eunuch knot.


The cafe asked me:


The era of fornication at the doors?


Silence caught me.. the words vanished on my lips, closed the heart


The bite, the antichrist, and faces stricken with no's collide


Fear lifted me to the thresholds of old age


It grows with lazy eyes, with infantile gray hair


Silence takes over with the voice chanting in the language


The bad breath challenges you through the fingers of a newscast


And the landlords with the dead on the sidewalks of the poor


Still, I know, in the tight, safe rooms


I lie like ropes of vine


In the longing of a woman who fornicates, she gives birth to all the defeated for an age to come


his death

On Tuesday 9/22/2003, Nawaf died of a severe cerebral hemorrhage, and after a deep coma for ten days in the hospital.
