Postcard form Palestine

This poem was posted to assawra by Djamal Benmerad, an Algerian poet (who blogs at, today.
Carte postale de Palestine

A Ramallah l’enfant
par une bombe à fragmentation
me regarde les yeux mi-clos
comme pour me dire
« Pourquoi ? »

Djamal Benmerad
Postcard form Palestine

In Ramallah the child
blown apart
by a fragmentation bomb
looks at me with his half-closed eyes
as if to say "Why?"

Djamal Benmerad
Translation by Yoshie Furuhashi
