Persiflage

who plays god in your head
what secret screams in your sleep
what is your real name

In the wonderful mess of her mind albino plants are nests for hugtandalfers and she uses astrolabes as haute teacups.

I’m a manuscript buried in the depths of Bibliothèque Al-Imam Essayouti waiting for the hands that will come out of the sand dunes to set me on fire as haram; Ahmed Baba al-Massufi wrote me in the year 1582 and the poetry contained in me is as black as his beard; skin; robes; eye; ferrous sulphate vegetable ink.

15,000 of us are marching against Alexandria under ‘Amr ibn al-‘As; my bow, brave; Byzantine blood paints the soil; we are all painters; divine; paint with death. History our very own; painful, one song.

I am me; just me; watching you stepping out of bed; your foot, flattening and plumping imperceptibly as it comes in contact with the floor; 1 a.m.; I am; the floor; the image of your foot changing; houses my imagination till Life; eclipsed; is parted with me.
