One day

the child of the stars
will grow up
.by the water reeds
He will pour water like light
.on to ripening dates
One day
he will recite 
all that he can
from The Painful Verses,
.then step away, clothed in the garments of a prophet
One day
"he will wear a mawwal
and a rhyme
,that embody the South
