Small World

Yesterday’s sand is under my fingernails and a fine yellow trail of it vibrates in the lining of my rucksack. It’s been so long since I’ve even seen a beach that I imagine I’m back home for a moment, toes licked by the eerie shallows on my walk to the mosque. But they’re just granules that have fallen off Mohammed’s ‘Back Home’ collage.
