Pamplona is the capital of northern Spain’s Navarre province. It’s best known for the Running of the Bulls (Fiesta de San Fermín). During this legendary multi-day festival in July, bulls are led through the city streets by daredevil runners.

“لا شيء يعجبني” – A new 2016 artwork

مستوحاة من قصيدة درويش "لا شيء يعجبني"
مستوحاة من قصيدة درويش “لا شيء يعجبني”

“لا شيءَ يُعْجبُني”
يقول مسافرٌ في الباصِ – لا الراديو
ولا صُحُفُ الصباح, ولا القلاعُ على التلال.
أُريد أن أبكي/
يقول السائقُ: انتظرِ الوصولَ إلى المحطَّةِ,
وابْكِ وحدك ما استطعتَ/
تقول سيّدةٌ: أَنا أَيضاً. أنا لا
شيءَ يُعْجبُني. دَلَلْتُ اُبني على قبري،
فأعْجَبَهُ ونامَ، ولم يُوَدِّعْني/
يقول الجامعيُّ: ولا أَنا، لا شيءَ
يعجبني. دَرَسْتُ الأركيولوجيا دون أَن
أَجِدَ الهُوِيَّةَ في  الحجارة. هل أنا
حقاً أَنا؟/
ويقول جنديٌّ: أَنا أَيضاً. أَنا لا
شيءَ يُعْجبُني. أُحاصِرُ دائماً شَبَحاً
يُحاصِرُني/
يقولُ السائقُ العصبيُّ: ها نحن
اقتربنا من محطتنا الأخيرة، فاستعدوا
للنزول…/
فيصرخون: نريدُ ما بَعْدَ المحطَّةِ،
فانطلق!
أمَّا أنا فأقولُ: أنْزِلْني هنا. أنا
مثلهم لا شيء يعجبني، ولكني تعبتُ
من السِّفَرْ.
