Poetry Week: Yash Seyedbagheri

By: Yash Seyedbagheri

 

Fireworks

 

fireworks fizzle

red and blue

booming in midnight skies

arcs of light spilling over

ice-filled spaces

cheers rising over rooftops

but clouds begin to form

colors dulling

booms dying

it’s really icy now

 

 

Writer In The Sky

 

from sky’s soft sheets

you can look down on cathedrals and cobblestones, skyscrapers,

and laugh at the specks among them

characters in a story

they look familiar, rushing so fast,

no horns up here, no invectives, and phones pinging with ex-wives

calling you puerile

just the whirl of soothing voices and starched smiles

asking if you want another twelve-dollar drink

might as well drink now

at least in the sky, you’re the writer

not the protagonist
