Goose

Pretty he was

The truck driver

When he resisted killing the goose

Three months, twenty days, and five hours

Until he did

When he saw her leaving the room

Naked without feathers

An enchantress

He took his knife to her white neck

She looked at him

Blood

Never spilled

By Fatma Naoot (translated from Arabic)
