Your wired mind larger than Arabia
like a continent shrouded with beauty and rage,
I imagine you recalling the gush from Indian winds
the taste salted by curry fragrance
as your mouth drolls two languages,
till lashes of day forget night’s kiss...
Oh, but do not forget how desert sands
cradle your songs, to drain your troubles
on pita of seed-blessed lawns,
your eyes travelling across gentle sky
and down below, see the jasmines
naming your dreams
upon child-woman’s feet...for life-light
sparks in your womb, breath swelling
a prayer around moist dew.. and here,
through love for self and kin, you are safe
within the overflowing beads
of a tranquil moon ; your mouth
a garden of bright joys unseen
that even in ruins of wired mind,
your breath shines among rocks...
Oh, do not forget the 'i' in your life.
