Sarcophagus written by Mazena Mackoit at

Every Saturday from a sealed tomb
the daughter of pharaoh slides away,
She steps over the roofs of this city.
absorbs the smoke from the chimneys
and pours it out through the lungs
in the form of a bagel.
Tickles the soles of the sleeping,
Eavesdropping a confession of city.
With shadow of her profile
hums the tune of the Nile.
With her shining coat closes us in the sarcophagus
until next Sunday,
then the malicious Pharaoh
puts on it
another seal.
