Until – Efemeral

Until – Efemeral

“Hager will seek to quench
my thirst:
run –
from Triumph to Disaster,
run –
from Disaster to Triumph,

until I run
from I until I
until I resist
I until I
desist I
until I learn the prayer
that grants settlement
in the Zamzam quenched valley,
between the two mounts
until I
treat those two imposters just the same”
