I Feel Pain 24/7, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 187,505 items / 1,475,831 views

a mystic poet
a beggar poet
my name
pain
is my inheritance
from the soul
of humanity
i claim
what the muslims
sacrifice on bakra eid
i sacrifice
in hussains name
my blood sweat tears
a cleavage of my scalp
gray matter and brain
a heretic they call me
my notoriety i disclaim
doing tandav
dance of death
on the soul
of shimr
a shia hindu
i became
for me
bakra eid
moharam
are both same
hussain is
humanity
i proclaim
reliving
the blackest
chapter
of Islam
the ignominy
the shame
yazids darbar
72 heads
on a spear
bibi zainab
the lioness cub
of ali her
kutbas her fame
in the very
court of yazid
yazidiyat
she lit flame

The Cosmic Poets Last Stand

The Cosmic Poets Last Stand, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 187,505 items / 1,475,790 views

her first blow
the agony
the shame
gurgling blood
a choked throat
stealthily
death came
took down
his address
his name
a candle
a burning wick
a fearless flame
end of a mortal
vicious game
of love a love
could not tame
disfigured
defamed
as he lies
unmoving
on the bloody
floor women
who murder
poets of their poetry
are women all the same
taking from one giving
to the other the name
of the game
cest vrai
avec ma vie
"Je t'aime...

Is Love Halal Or Does It Become Halal After It Is Killed

Is Love Halal Or Does It Become Halal After It Is Killed, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 151,408 items / 1,159,720 views

a poetic thought
spluttered down
my legs it spilled
the blood thirsty blade
sharp smooth blow
swift fate had
obliquely willed
she recited
'a short verse
a cosmic poet
she killed
liver heart spleen
in the freezer
to make
haleem for
three little bears
she chilled
from his ran
great kebabs
to be barbecued
grilled
a one sided lovers
deleted doomed
death wish
unfulfilled
a barren heart
once upon a time
on facebook
she had tilled
she was sad
she was morose
she had time to kill
as she ponders
carelessly
on the window sill
to destroy love
takes a second
a lifetime
to build
clapping
her hands
happy
enormously
thrilled
she says
she is stupid
but she is cunning
deceivingly skilled

I Shoot Hijras Should Not Be Held Against Me Or My Humanity

I Shoot Hijras Should Not Be Held Against Me Or My Humanity, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. 187,505 items / 1,475,726 views

I shoot them neither for profit nor gain
I shoot hijras because as a poet
I shoot relive pain hope
humanity barefeet follower of hussain
the hijra is androgynous dilemma
born bred nurtured by a cosmic brain
neither man nor woman neither
male or female a travesty of gender
simple and plain...exhumed dead emotions
part of history her remains bleeding hand
in desperation she cut her own vein

This Hijra Symbolises Pain of a Life Time

Shooting Pain...Reliving It Too

The Rod In The Mouth An Act of Faith

a memorable
gift she left for me
that binds her
to my pain
rods in my body
soul and heart
you cannot see
a fool
i was to
have fallen
in love
with her
catastrophically
gastronomically
a dish called
haleem
she made with
my body parts
cost me
astronomical
stupid and silly
a poet
shakir sucker
patronymically
ab ap chup rahen ji
words to that effect
reverberate soundlessly
my poems a reminder
of one sided love
dashed on the rocks
of eternity completely
frivolously wounded
bleeding mortally
holding to
last vestige
of dear life
precariously
vicariously
