Allah has a big shiny name
by Linda Bansil

I need a red rose to look at
God made something red without boxes
some of them are yellow too
and white ones for all the mothers who died before

staring at the blue sky I write my name in mysterious clouds
that can be chased by the planes

God made the biggest name
Allahu Akbar
its so big and shiny
its so big and shiny

Its so big and shiny
and its not even gold
-its more
it has diamonds and its real.

I pray to God that if I see him
make my eyes better so I wouldn’t
hurt  these eyes for he is too bright
and his big big one hundred names or 99.
