by Michal Mahgerefteh
My Oracle cradle my yearnings to the edge of meaning as I roam into the farthest depths of Sinai leaping blindly within the hidden heights of purpose My Oracle breathe onto me a burst of Alphabet a life-force at its purest that I should settle in the vessel of my own being sated with answered prayers My Oracle on equal footing appoint my name into the book of Worthy of Words empurpled with the floret of life without it, all is a random wander
