Aloof

And as the fires swallowed my cries
I opened my eyes to face life’s lies.
I closed my heart and gave up tries for a prize:
to accept failures without whys and be wise
to break ties and move in smaller gyres
to avoid fires and flat tires caused by familiar mires.

Finjian

Finjan

Finjan is the Arabic word for the typical coffee up and saucer you use when you drink Turkish Coffee. Fin is actually supposed to be fan but the pronunciation of the word changed overtime to resemble the word jin(also means genie and jan is the formal Arabic word for jinni(also Arabic spoken) or genie).
