a journey

By Abrahim Harb

A not-so-cheap affair,
you just keep cramming,
your lovely mouth with food—
good food, I must proclaim!

an answer,
to your (un)spoken prayers?
& your collision with real mediation—
not just some wannabe act, as before.

A trip cut short,
3 months too short
& that medicine man from 2 years ago—
She wonders upon arrival, is He still alive?
