Mohaned Nur

 Four Poems, selected from 

My Geopolitics







 

1. Geopolitics






Meet me in the Kempinski lobby
Through the Emirati fields
When my white master gives me a visa





2. Hmmm






There’s a cheesy ass place in
jumeira
Do you have a place in mind ?
I don’t have a bed
Let me think where we should go
Okay then pick a hotel
I’m in the mall
Alright I’m walking to vox





3. Hahaha






white lies
White tears
White tears is when white people cry
cause they feel bullied
The pope can suck it
They are made for suck in’
It’s right
Come now





3. There’s a lot of things I want to say






Hahaha aww you’re flying to Paris ?
Can I come
What is it in French ?
Baghdad ah
Honestly wish we could meet in a prettier
place
