A Rival to Laat and Uzza

is she a statue

an idol from

prehistoric Arabia

a rival to Laat and Uzza

she asks

if worship

can be intwined

in what we call life

complaining of the mundane

statues surround her

she detests duality

her desire to worship

love’s only love

her heart

a K’aba

worships itself

through her reflection

pure monotheism

her supposed claim

then came Laila

who caused apostasy
