Poisonous Illusions

by Abdl Rahim Salih al-Rahim

The stars above
that have always fascinated us
carrying us off into the labyrinth of the imagination
are probably spying on us.
Have they deceive us all these years?
Perhaps it is the stars
in their awesome beauty
that are snatching away our souls.
