Love Letter

(Ya Habibi!)

Oh, my Beloved!
The stench of your sins
Wafts into your nose
Fraying the senses
And yet you plead ignorance.


My Beloved
As your goblet fills
with the tears of those
Who you’ve wronged.
The tears
of the beaten
of the weary
of the damned
I hope you raise your glass
And taste the atrocious wine.
And pray that it awakens
Your Humanity.
