“where’re
ya going?

“are you
lost?”

“car
break down?”

“need
a ride?”

he had
walked
from the
beginning

he doesn’t
remember
why

always
walking
alone

but walking
with a
a purpose

just having
no purpose
to his walking

exercise

getting
some air

collecting
thoughts

getting
away

he offered
any number
of reasons

none
rang true

now
in the desert
Faris knew
why he
walking

he was
walking
with Allah

as he
had been
all along
