“Retrospectivity” by Aziza Abdullah

Pre-dawn; dish of the day
By noon; a squeeze of lemon
undiluted on the tongue,
Altering tastes of things to come.

Memories play back in repetition 
Ninety-nine eyes morph into windows,
Each looking at the same sun-bleached canvas
Unmistakable likeness. An old crime?

Revised mercy, benched for safekeeping. 
Dusk descends as on a routine day,
but with all of the previous night’s convictions
still fired up in the belly.
