New Poem by André Naffis-Sahely

Eyewear is pleased to publish a new poem by André Naffis-Sahely, a poet, critic and self-styled fabulist. He lives in London.

The Journalist Speaks of The Dictator

I do not like the taste in my mouth.
To remonstrate would be better,
to keep my mouth shut would be best.
I can count – and know how many
lost their nerve at the sight of his smile
and how many more died in silence
sliding down the slick wall of his teeth.
