Yaqoob Ghaznavi!

Dragon Feast

in front
of the balcony
on opaque air
above the clothesline
a snake charmer
is dancing
to the heartbeat
of his cobra

his jealous wife
is not pleased
starts a big fire
flames destroy
the illusion
of a dance floor

oncoming traffic
splashing into the smoke
comes to a sudden halt

the snake charmer
into oleander bushes
barely avoids heart failure

witches of the north
cobra’s distant cousins
hold counsel
debate lawsuit

before consensus is reached

the night-well dries up
