"The Palestinian child Samih, son of Mohammad Qasim al-Hussein, born May 1939, later known as the poet Samih al-Qasim
A maker of miracles, able to slip out of deadly predicaments.
Handcuffs and detention camps. Exile and slaughter.
The United Nations had hid his country in a cell, under lock and key, and returned home to discover that he’d removed its corpse from the cell and its locks had not been picked.
Here is Harry Houdini!
He’s drinking in the saloon of ruin
A king without an army."
Samih Al-Qasim, 'The Tragedy of Houdini the Miraculous'
