HORSETALE

You are in the North
And I am in the South.
Between us there goes a long eternal road.

The hateful horses of civilization does not sleep ever.
They run round the clock.
From the East to the West, there are their stables 
everywhere.

The horses go on running.
You and I run after the horses
Seeing their horserace.

The horses  visit us at our homes.
They, like a new kinsman, eat 
And move with pleasure.
We have no stable. We had ever none.

The horses recite spells,
Sing songs
And laugh.

Keeping horses into bedroom
Our housewives sit in the pavement.
Sometimes they elope with grooms.

Horses go
And horses come.
We two tell only the horsetale.
Translation: Sayeed Abubakar
