On the picture house.

Posted in عراق by ///// on 25/11/2012


This is the picture house.

There’s a bed on the roof. The blanket that’s used as a door – I pull it over me when I sleep, like this.

At night, I become handsome, erect, a projectionist ambling toward the projection booth.

A blanket is flung over the screen and a sound recording begins. A lover drives me to Baqouba in the rain. I’m soaked, pressing my bearded kisses along her flattened contours, looking for ways and reasons to enter her.
