  • Tailor made

    Bismillah


    he walks into the room and sees it laid out
    creaseless, markless, collars done up
    his wrists inside the cuff,
    it doesn’t go past his knees
    his right side slightly different to his left
    he looks at the muddy tunic
    on the floor still dishevelled
    his jeans still staying up with his belt
    he looks in the mirror and sees a wolf
    scars from teenage acne shine in the light
    the marks on his forehead remind him of his past
    back to the present , Beowulf with his new clothes on
    bodyspray to the pits, throws away the absorbing pads
    Covers up his neck with a scarf, he’s already too late
    the taxis metres been running since he went in to change his t shirt
    “A single heart cannot serve as the place for two things, let alone several. If the heart is filled with the sensory perceptions, its rare that it would perceive meaning of Allah, even if one were to say Allah a thousand times”

      It’s about a man trying out a brand newshirt that’s been tailor made for him
      his old shirt is dirty and nowhere near the same quality which is why it’s a big deal for him
