Like a flickering tongue,

I pray you

Bring light to my language!

Divine fire

Escapes me

And disperses

Into murky silence,


Behind the heat of the night

Where distortion pulses

Over the skyline

There sings a transmission


In the breath of the city

To ignite


In a lurking truth

That none can berate: -

God is the greatest

There is no God but God.
