In Cairo, Awake

In Cairo, Awake

written by: Meg Smith



I am lying within a screen
of iron, melded into flowers.
We are both our simplest element.
Only one thing forms a true circle —
at dusk, and the last
moment of darkness —
the call to prayer, to witness.
Within them no one lies alone,
gathering everyone, remembered.
