Adjusting Machine

by. Ms. Silvana Salmanpour

I am lost

Search everywhere

Under the clean and dirty dishes

In between the chopped vegetables

In the basket of unwashed cloths

In the kids’ toys cupboard

Behind the books that are waiting for 

me

And inside the papers that my yells    

had darken them…

If you found me…!

Remind me that my wish was to be a 

poet, who wanted to versify for 

liberty…

Oh, really

What I wanted to be…?

The one who is here,

is a machine that;

washes

cleans

cooks

and gets lost…

Find me

I am lost…!
