Dabachi Dreams

man sits under olive tree,
smiling
camel in the backyard

three pink poppies drink the sun
orange rot in gutter
you are not beautiful,
the boy said yesterday
well, fuck

i am the majorelle blue

the oil that drips off my fingers
from the lamb meat
that emerged from the earth

i am the red clay dried-up riverbed
the vastness of the agafay

the portrait of salah,
white earbuds hidden
in whitewashed blue robes
