This dream gave me the shivers.
It is perfect as is, any commentary might blemish its golden light.
All I would say comes from Rumi in a poem penned around 1300 BCE
An Egypt That Doesn't Exist
I want to say words that flame
as I say them, but I keep quiet and don't try
to make both worlds fit in one mouthful.
I keep secret in myself an Egypt
that doesn't exist.
Is that good or bad? I don't know.
For years I gave away sexual love
with my eyes. Now I don't.
I'm not in any one place. I don't havve a name
for what I give away. Whatever Shams (his estatic master/teacher)
gave, that you can have from me.
