City Poems: Cairo

Remarkable! After all this desert-burning,
encompassing Angry suns and all
after the untimely death of the Old Gods,
left to dangerous mysticism and as far from truth…

entwining with overbearing Zealots and Old-Order geniuses.

all the Ancient Religions and the base of That,
intercepting lives of Awakening Dry…still.
Realizing how Yellow-Orange and affecting Sun,
Overshadowing Pasts. Ah…the tomb walls. Cooled of the day
