The Spiritual Windowshopper?

These spiritual windowshoppers, who idly ask, How much is that? Oh, I’m just looking.

They handle a hundred items and put them down,
Shadows with no capital.

What is spent is love
And two eyes wet with weeping.
But these walk into a shop,
And their whole lives pass suddenly in that moment,
In that shop.

Where did you go?


What did you have to eat?

Nothing much.

Even if you don’t know what you want,
Buy something
To be part of the general exchange.

Start a huge, foolish project like Noah.

It makes absolutely no difference
What people
Think of you.

  • I was thinking that more folks in Jordan should remember, “It makes absolutley no difference what people think of you.” That would have saved the lives of the four sisters killed by their brother which was in court recently and all these other ‘honor’ killings. People worry far too much about what others are thinking of them. Why don’t you worry about what Allah thinks of you. That would improve things here in Jordan immensely.
