Ring of Fire

in solitude on the eve

of the ring of fire

beneath the Makkan skyline

of a starry studded night

canopying concrete scapers

co created by bedouin crusaders

financing BIG bulldozers

contracting minced mountains

crumbled cosmic dust

i collect sacred sand and shattered stars

to recollect land

to listen to laments

of pebbles and paupers

an Arabian Nightmare

Alladin’s Agrabah

Nimrod’s Nargis

it is what it is

i connect to essence

dry tears drizzle

to water razed history

now in abyss

a disastrous mystery

dubbed as conspiracy

by cookie thieves

and desert pirates

drunk in dinars and dahab

i chose silence
