on a Tunisian souk

Very good:)


There are people who claim value in high art: ballet, opera, the finest works of most-lauded authors.


I agree, I do agree, that’s all important.


But if you ask me about poetry in motion, about where to find the art of life manifested,


I’ll point you towards the markets, the wilds of a city, like the souk of downtown Tunis.


You only know a place once you’ve learned its rugged streets, its funky corners,


the beauty it hides in small bites and in plain sight.


You know a place once you’ve engaged its most forthright ambassadors, its most plenipotentiary negotiators: market vendors.


You know a place when you’ve breathed it in, whatever olfactory sensations that affords you!



You come to know a place through the rhythm of footsteps on its pavement,


when the many aspects of culture, climate and locale culminate to produce a throbbing, artful chaos.


Greetings knock about as people…
