Poem 22 / 22 Elegies in the Month of Tir

No symbols or allusions
in between
Newspapers all get corrected
lines (are)
rows of crushed roach corpses inside publishing houses
Goya's painting
on newspaper stand's shelf
seem to stare
at blank newspapers
and review
their hopes and what has remained in their hearts
