Summoned by the Cube


by the Cube

on a full moon effulgence 

to pay homage to her grandson

a disheveled arrival 

at the feet of Jalal and Qadir

taking refuge in an ancient chain 

a pledge witnessed Al Mujtaba

by order of Al Muntazir

This crucification

A resurrection  

Death to life

Life to death

I desired to access your being

so I studied your words

they revealed what your lips failed to convey

As Moses upon Tur, I seek not presence

rather your words 

through what You revealed 

upon tablets and parchment 

This revelation as love letters to every beloved apparent and secret

I desired to access your beloved

So I studied her words
