It began with trees we gave names to, etched with so many things that lived and fought to fill a space in that tomb we call a heart.

I cry white and blue, question if I’m here to father more lives before I am ready to age in one place.

The wind scatters my tears, laughs like a djinn in the fields when they bloom.


When glass shattered we were told something evil had passed by and not through us. So we swept up the mess believed ourselves to be lucky until what followed for years.
