WHEN MY EYES CRY by Saleh Qaderbouh

When my eyes cry 
A goose comes from Finland 
and wipes them with her wing. 

And when I laugh 
A panda from Korea pushes me with its elbow 
cheerfully chuckled. 

And when I sleep 
Waddan of the Great African desert carries me 
on its back. 

Its magical horn shines 
And we disappear 
Among the sand breasts.

Saleh is a poet from Libya, mainly writing in Arabic.
