hope inside the garden

Those lines are crosscurrents inside the silence.
Those poetry books are cremated.
I ponder on those crimes.
I find no clue.

I observe and observe.

I see birds everywhere
in this garden.

The chirping is a resistant poem.
The wings are resistant poetry volumes.

Fences are utterly burnt.
