                                  The Day Elizabeth Taylor Died 

                             Libya’s getting bombed
                             Sohar is burning
                             I have a TV with three channels
                             local and two UAE sports
                             but the papers cover it and
                             I remember National Velvet and Lassie
                             a childhood, The Three Stooges
                             Old Yeller
                             Reflections in a Golden Eye
                             the girl with the black hair
                             and high riding boots
                             that beautiful woman
                             old in later years and recall
                             how we all pass away
                             like the wind and the sand.
