Blink

going
through
photographs

[god is in weibdeh]

collected
over
almost
a
year

[isharat 7ada2eq il malek abdallah]

always
behind
the
scenes
never
alone

[paranoid]

a
year
has
passed

[giving water out in ramadan, and ramadan is near]

and
yet
too
often
things
go
bad

[kung fu hustle, the lady screams]

but
when
i
look
at
time

[11:07]

spent
happy

[glitter]

never
alone

[unhealthy, remember shaban?]

i
just
smile

[enter ashton kutcher in front of a takeaway lady]

and then?

    “Khalidah, I’m dreading Ramadan :(”

    I am both dreading it and curiously looking forward to it…I will grace Amman itself for the first time in early October. I’m non-Muslim, but the Jordanian in-laws I’m finally meeting are devoutly observant, so here goes nothing (cue hunger pains;) )
