באוהלך



מתוך ערפל סמיך הופיע לי אוהלך
ועל ארבע זחלתי וביקשתי להכנס
פתחת לי מהר ומשכת אותי אליך
ובנשיקות מטורפות הלילה התחיל

כמה מתוק להיות לצדך
אך בצדק אומר שלא באתי להתנשק
הגיע הזמן שתשכב על צדך
ואת גורלך תקבל

אז תפתח לי לאט לאט את שערך
הכניסה אל גן-עדן קשה, ככתוב
קשה לי לראות את הגיהינום על מבטך
אך ברגע אחד כל הכאב יעלם

יקירי, אתה מפתיע אותי מחדש כל פעם. סחתיין על היצירה החכמה והמתוקה.

האם הוא אכל מהארוחת בוקר שהיכנת? זאת עם הבייקון בסירופ מייפל והלבנה?

ניזו,
כתוב יפה מאוד, קצת עצוב, עם מעין אווירה של התנצלות (ואולי זה רק נדמה לי?) כאילו הוא מקריב קרבן למענך.

טעות כתיב קטנה: "מבטך" ולא "מבתך"

ליסה:
המילים שלך מתוקות ונעימות לאוזן ולנשמה
;)..וכן את ניחשת נכון

תודה לשניכם

נכון ,זה משקף את מצב הרוח שלי ברגע שכתבתי את השיר...

אגב.. כשכתבתי את השיר האחרון בערבית, הייתי יותר צנוע...אפילו נכנע..

Dude... lovely poetry... but I strongly suspect that your well-strung words are, in fact, a hidden song of praise to Cthulhu. Did you join NC in Elder Gods' worship? :)


And in other news: according to a famous Columbia U. academic, you are a Western conspiracy and, in fact, do not exist.

Your reaction? :)

Raccoon,
LOL...No LSD has been used in the writing of my poems, only the finest cuban rum.

As for the article, I would love to comment in detail but I have to go to work.. for now I'll say that there's definitely an element of truth in Massad's approach. The "gay" identity is a western (read: American) contruct, in the middle east it's always been described as an urge, a facet. Hombre on Hombre Sex in the middle east 10-15 years ago was much easier than it is now, straights back then allowed themselves to experiment and it was viewed simply as a release, there was no worry about being labeled. Now, that the gay thing is an "identity", they don't want to be associated with it.

This isn't just an Arab phenomenon, old time Quebeckers tell me that things here were the same decades ago before american pop-culture made inroads.

More later when I'm back from my khara job.

as long as they're the pitchers and not the catchers.. being on the receiving end carries a stigma.

The Raccoon said...

A stigma and a death sentence.

American pop culture carries its memes with it, and a "gay identity" is one of them, indeed. Which doesn't negate the pre-existing explicitly homosexual sub-cultures in some Muslim states (Janissars in Turkey, the whole Afghan pederasty habit, etc).

Moreover, it's people's free choice to be inflicted with pop culture's viral memes.

And even more OT: d'you dig Goran Bregović? I reckon his music is tailor-made for you ;)

Tsedek said...

goran bregovich is amazing. i love his music. but then you didn't ask me :(

pity

The Raccoon said...

Tse - are you Polishing me? :)

Nizo said...

Raccoon,
Goran is great... but the world would be a safer place if I didn't listen to him. You see, I have this habit of dancing, gesticulating and clapping to music - all while driving. My friends typically get into it too, and the end result can be pretty scary.

But it does come with an advantage ... when other drivers see a truck-full of boisterous Levantines coming their way they tend to get the hell out of our way.

The Raccoon said...

Nizo -

LOL :)

Did you get back from your khara job yet? :)

Nizo said...

hehe.. I'm back home now.. How I managed to get any work done is a miracle in itself, for I spend my days dreaming up colourful ways of torturing the little consultant with a lisp who calls himself my boss.. You see, at the interview he sold me something completely different from what I ended up doing..

So when he says Bonjour, I smile and answer back with a Koss Immak..

I told him it's an ancient Palestinian expression of respect for authority..

The Raccoon said...

hehehehehe :)

Say, is that even legal? For him to hire you to do one thing and then have you do a different one?

You must DEFINITELY give me a ride one day, I'll bring the music :D

It's plain false advertising..

;)


Tse:
Khalas.. ride's on me.. music's on you.. yallah hafla
