O sidewalk,
 tamer of the poor,
 Tell us about your scanned stones
 shoe dye,
 about banana peels,
 On sucking cigarette butts
 about mindless chewing gum,
 About black tuberculosis spit...
 Tell us about the vegetable hills you sell,
 How do tomatoes turn red
 After hours in the sun,
 How do you lose...
 I wish you would stop empty philosophy,
 O sidewalk,
 And fill our souls with the scent of basil,
 wild thyme,
 Tell us about the leeks and the leeks,
 The stinging red mushroom like a female.
 Tell us how was your bed?
 Before you leave at dawn.


 Art installation by Amir Khatib
