Arabic calligraphy text (English)

Your voice cuts the chest of the silence / The grain of wheat / And breaks through our ears and makes them submit to it / You hate to stay buried / Break the lock of the question of the "reservoir" / And go out / And give birth every day even to an ear.
—Rushdi al-Madhi

Arabic calligraphy text (Arabic)

صوتك يشرح صدر الصّمت / حبّة القمح / ويشقّ آذاننا له ممتثلة / أنت تكرهين البقاء مدفونة / اكسري قفل تساؤل "الخزان" / واخرجي / ولدي كلّ يوم ولو سنبلة.
—رشدي الماضي
