razan al-najjar




a world

they said

a final you don’t

miss like every-

one would the pain

of living



at the centre of it

where they’re singing

your lost anthems

walk on             in shades

a last no

go in all directions


start by shooting young

medics in the back

oh razan

how we love you

when you’re dead
