After Rumi by Mike Zone

the mouse and camel in subtle worship
under nuclear colored skies
restless ground
dead mountains protruding
following a candle lit
one would lead the other
chest full of laughter
where the other would not
watching the crow fly
talons crushing/gripping the frog’s eye
so much for friendship and string
no open windows here
