In Caves and Cafes

Time a mental construct

who can prove that time is limited

to a 24 day cycle

as reality

in another realm

1 day spans 500 years

time is subjective

our discourses over lattes

in caves and cafes





no ago of weeks or days

no sorrow

I am not aware


of the space time claims

to create a false notion

of borders

and malicious veils

romantic fairytales

sung by Layla’s lying eyes

seeking Khais

his reflection appears

upon desert dunes

his face shimmers in the silent sun

was he the sun or an eclipsed moon

Khais reappears time again

in the mirage

beneath widowed palms

of Arabian sands

uttering time is a greater mirage

i am only a reflection
