Do You Hear the Siren?

Guess Who

She calls from the hills,
“If only you could see things
My way, you’d love it up here.”

She runs her hands over the logs.
Perhaps it’s indiscreet to write
About this. Obsessively she chinks.

She chinks. Lovingly her cabin
Grows, and the one she wants
To rescue from decay she knows.

She calls from the hills,
“if only you would come visit,
You’d want to stay and work for me.”

“Throw My Country to the Wind”

All too easy to seize the passport
Of a nearly blind and elderly poet,

A woman who bequeaths honey
From wind, Simin Behbahani,

Confined to house arrest by men
Who would stone the lioness of Iran.
