Burning Sage

A new poem

by Dina Omar
Sido’s prayer beads gone missin must be the jinn
Sido mad his prayer beads gone missin must be the jinn
Sito ain’t round no more to fetch it for him

Sido never could stand it when she said somethin smart
Sacred Sido would say somethin so Sito never said nothin smart

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Dina Omar is a Palestinian poet and a graduate student in anthropology at Columbia University.
