{mooblock=Our True Place on Earth}

On a backpacking trip
in southern Morocco
a young man from Minnesota
walked out into a star-drenched night
and thought it was snowfall

Now the tails of comets
are less visible than bombs
during Isha’ in Gaza

We live in false light
losing the dark truth
of our true place on earth
