Lahab Assef Al-Jundi - Exit


            How does one walk into a room without depth?
            Make himself comfortable on a blue line?
            How can one talk to his silent shadow?
            Escape the noisy footsteps of others?


In one of your pockets hides a door.


I was having a very rough day, when I read these gentle words, written by a human being whom I have had the privilege of "knowing" virtually for several years. 

Thank you, Assef.

From Assef's new book,

No Faith at All


Dip your love pen
Into the inkwell of truth,
And let your own
Holy hand
