Mecca

bitter pilgrims
dry mold pathways
sand shimmers
mecca beckons
overhead oasis threatens
absolution

heathen's mistress
kneel
before the black stone
pray forgiveness
weep
surrender

children hurl ice frozen cubes
past the MickeyD's
waiting for tourists
but these ice chips want blood

Oh this is very intriguing, you. I am liking the short sharp lines and images within make for a interesting read. Well done, you.

Powerfully written. An undertone
of surreal anger.
