1 poem | Saira Viola

Symphony No 2

Washington bullets pulp her pussy
And Western eyes rape her sovereignty
Her bloody tongue
Silenced by Drones
She is a token of Waspy pride
A skinless statistic of government lies
And with the sweetness of the night
Under silver star washed skies
Bone and flesh tinder the fire.

 


Saira Viola is a poet, crime writer, satirist and creator of sonic scatterscript—a pioneering literary technique she devised that draws upon street slang, art, nature, pop culture and linguistic beats to describe characters and plot. Most of her novels are infused with topical issues and much of her poetry confronts the social canvas of life in all its fetid glory.
