Dreaming of a Destination


Morocco


You’re a muscle memory
yet to be acquired, a taste
well-known––of tagine and harissa. 
How I miss you when we haven’t met.
See your lantern lit in my library.

Adams Morgan is a pseudo-souk 
––I’m sold on a pair of your babouche.
Impractical footwear gets me nowhere
near a medina, but shuttles after quaint. 
These bids to make your acquaintance.
See? Your lantern lit in my library.

~ LCMH
