#Poem in the souk

You’re in the souk and this boy says
his uncle is the best weaver in Marrakesh
and he leads you off down narrow alleyways
until you’re lost and have to pay him to get back
which is why I had a ball of thread with me
when you showed me your garden

  1. I really like this! The ball of thread is VERY important when being led down alleys. Hansel and Gretel used breadcrumbs, but some bird could have pick those up in its beak, or a good rain could have washed them away. A spool of red thread is much more reliable, and more quickly noticed in the event you must run!
