Bulgaria


The grafitti marked the new beginning
The rubble in the streets
A telling symbol of political decay

A girl crosses the street
A new way on the other side
An outstretched hand
calling for democracy

I see vestiges of propaganda and political dissidents
And still Stalin’s presence is felt in Bulgaria

Remnants of her home country, personal during her youth
shaped the rest of her life
Hope marked the fall of the Communist Wall
November 2015

Political ennui ensued
A weariness and hopelessness filled the face of a nation
And still Stalin’s presence is felt in Bulgaria

In Bulgaria prose poem

Graffiti foretold the new beginning Rubble in the streets A telling story of political decay A girl crosses the street Is there a new way on the other side An outstretched hand Calling for Democracy Vestiges of propaganda, Imprisoned dissidents
