Dear Cairo


we just met... but

you disarm me


you show me every

piece of yourself


laid painfully bare

along your streets


beautiful and broken

side by side


you push me

to be a version


of myself I didn’t

know existed


a me who smiles

in the face of death


and inhales every

droplet of joy


i breathe from

your heavy air


a me who desperately

wants to live


a life filled with

all that I am


laid open and bare

in the streets


beautiful and broken

side by side


all creating one

glorious mosaic
