more than a metaphorical transformation

not among the living


don’t veer.



Their Perfect Man,

his connection

to their only God,

younger than Moses’

or that promised Paradise

for those who die as they serve

Him while killing infidels.

1400 years later, it still works

like magic, or,

(what’s the word for it in Arabic?)

hypnosis, a deadly form,

an otherworldly spirit poison

that transforms messengers

in subsonic jets,

convinces them they’re aiming

flying minarets
