looking for trouble



I once had a student

who would sit alone in her house at night

shivering with worries and fears


Come morning

she would often look as though

she had been raped by a ghost


Then one day my pity

crafted for her a knife

from my own divine sword


Since then

I have become very proud

of this student


For now, come night

not only has she lost all her fear

now she goes out


Just looking

The Great Sufi Master
