Traveller’s Guide

Beneath reliquaries of gongs and turbans,

Recall the clatter of marionettes.

Unburden floors with hammocks and bristles;

Renounce no swoon.

Be lucid;

Beware crouching dervishes.

If disturbed,

Exhume the breath of luminous midnights.

Where mandates become faultlines,

Nomads may require new road music.

Snort when doubt persists;

And dine only on hunters and victorious plums.
