Truncated Ghazal for Good Health

Written by: Aron Jacob

Organic mystery, bated breath
Known causes, uncertain breath.

Systemic matter, wild shields
Cells in order, fated breath.

Corporeal wave, bloody fashion
Tumultuous fissures, captured breath.

Peasant ailing, fortune calls
Civil measures, alien breath.

Shadows cast, a just reward
Mortal wishes, eternal breath.

Toasted glass, healer's gain
Conjured image, phantom breath.
