Jazzed out Moorish Catalog

A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

a Free Thought Poem

Sweet sound of Martian jazz

Being played on Persian flutes and Moroccan sand

Bopping beat of sharps and flats

Steel undercurrent of death metal choir

Pixie Ocean

 

Occasionally someone approaches the Sinatra microphone

Yelling into it

As if it’s a bottomless well

 

Each person an instrument

Ninths, fifths, augmented

Vibrations of a cool down sun from Mandy

 

Shams Muhammad

Drunken Sufi master

Gazing out at the crowded snow globe room

Reflections

He sings in a cosmic hobo voice

Allah

Allah wisdom saves

Allah

Allah wisdom saves

Father of truth is he

Father of truth is he

He, he, he,

Are you square?

 

Allah

Allah wisdom saves

Self-knowledge leads to Allah

 

God

 

Self-knowledge leads to Allah

Spring truth

Are you on the square?

Cipher

God cipher

God cipher

God cipher

God cipher

Allah

 

While Shams sings he spins round and around

The thoughts of Allah cheer

Wanting more

Shams leaves them

Hanging

Letting them meditate on the java filled words

 

Marijuana pillows

Junk beds

Sleeping cat
