The flight of birds shook still air,
he saw a squirrel hanging upside down from the ledge outside the classroom window,
a student was presenting her translation of Kabir's couplets
he looked at her for a few seconds as if rapt , then pointed out the mistakes she had made.
He seeped the tea bag for exactly two minutes in the evening,
in the tumultuous lives of Beauvoir and Sartre, a certain young woman Olga drowned herself, or did she?
a bird flew diagonally across his terrace door and cut the air into half
when he was younger, he wrote a long poem titled "Flapping Wings"
- his onerous, dark expenditure of words about the attack on twin towers and the ensuing wars in the Middle East.
