Order of Things

I used to be
A dolphin in the south sea

A horse grazing in the fields of Andalusia

An owl gazing at humans..with amber eyes in the Black Forrest

A book fresh from the printing house..new..clean..expensive.

A pair of silk and velvet corset…hand made…for a lady who would lounge pet a jaguar..and eat chips

A red rose..vibrant…in a sea of blue black hair…Arabic hair.. or Persian.. a hair that reeks with culture

A fine bone china teacup and saucer…Victorian..prim..proper…along with a scone .. maybe some double cream and jam

A boulevard of broken dreams…shattered illusions…harsh realities

A used paperback in the 50 cents pile…used..stained…torn

A washed pair of stockings..nude…some holes..not mended…laying all night at the sink..smell like cigarettes..sweat and other fluids

    Does hair reek culture?

    if tended properly it does.. it opens the door into vast knowledge of algebra and beauty

      Knowledge, algebra. Hmm. It has that capability. No wonder we cover ours, imagine elfitnah.

      U used to be a red rose? One might’ve taken you for a wilder type that grows where only the nomads live.

    Hair has the capacity to do wonders Noor..

    I would be a cactus or a oleander in the desert

    Nice post Ammar! Still don’t get some of these male fantasies…but I guess men are too complex for me to spend time unraveling their mysteries.:)
