Nadia

Marrakech: the grey hairs of 
Atlas, streaks of the light of years, 
like truth accompanied by a bodyguard.
It is not war: the fast tumble is no war, Nadia.
Two pendants, each of hearts, and the silvery lock leashed unto time; Is no war: but the travesty of distance, And this moment, a full breast glistening out of the moon, the darkened streets and hooded, like the lawless, stranger or wayfarer: It is the pod streaking with milk smelt so close, it vanishes, like the gecko abandoning her tail.
