Two Things East/West





Mosque

An ancient Eastern temple
Carved in the whitest stone
Embodies an ancient religion
Spiritual and ascetic throne
Fashioned from a chocolate box
Capitalism at its indulgent best
Temporal, packed with dark delight
Fleeting pleasures of the West

poems should incluide the word nantucket. i kept telling mr. frost this and he never listened to me.

the "nantucket path less taken" would have been memorable.

there is so much anti arab sentiment right now in the states....
