Ali Znaidi – Nomads for Sustainable Discovery

Nomads for Sustainable Discovery

 

Their appearance is signs fighting

carrions under, & upon the (sand) dunes—

A fait accompli.

 

Very like meteors, nomads’

eyes are stuffed w/ lights—

notes stoning the surface.

 

For them, sand is not just a utopia;

it is another skin, shiny,

a well-nourished lightening w/ pores

resembling big eyes.

 

In the carnival of gazing,

[without their eyes], there would be

no more tour operators, nor

discovery mags.

Ali Znaidi – East

East

 

wind lured

the

Orient-a-list

to wait

for two

antiquated

mythical

b(r)easts—

a panacea

for his

bewilderment.

 

Perhaps,

he could

write a new

list of

priorities

concerning

Western/

Eastern

relationships.

 

The cleavage

again, an estuarial

point…
