Devious

Like the surreptitious dervish
You can go on with the life that is yet to begin;
Like the stranger to the civilised ways
You can live the life of a renegade
Burnt and reincarnated millions of times;
The charred tree emitting the blue smoke
The inaudible voice uttering the hoarse cry
And I
On the penumbra of validation and banishment
Choose to be your mute follower.

We walked the path of the world
All the silent street that we passed
All the orchards where we rested ourselves
All the way-side tree that gave us shed
Told us to go on,

So we trudged along
The surreptitious dervish and his mute follower…
