for other poem on Right Now

the trick it seems
is to sleep on it,
overnight it
in such a fashion
that by dawn
and your rising,
it has disappeared
ethered,
vanished,
dissolved and

you can go about your business,
guilt free

Blackout (poem)

By Bänoo Zan

Bänoo Zan’s poem was written in the aftermath of countrywide protests against sudden steep rise in fuel price in Iran on November 15. Authorities shot down the Internet of the whole country and embarked on a horrific killing spree. Amnesty International has so far verified 208 deaths in less than a week.
