The Red Shirt



Has anyone seen the boy who used to come here?
Round-faced troublemaker, quick to find a joke, slow to be serious.
Red shirt,
perfect co-ordination, sly,
strong muscles, with things always in his pocket: reed flute,
ivory pick, polished and ready for his talent.
You know that one.
Have you heard stories about him?
Pharoah and the whole Egyptian world
collapsed for such a Joseph.
I'd gladly spend years getting word
of him, even third or fourth hand.




I've found a great site for any Rumi fan, and I've been referring to it a lot lately for my installments of dailyrumi (well, and for fun! :P). Arcane Ruminations: Rumi and the Major Arcana. I highly recommend you check it out.
