"Young girls in old Arabia were often buried alive next

to their fathers, apparently as sacrifice to the goddesses

of the tribes..."

--Harold Feldman, "Children of the Desert" Psychoanalysis

and Psychoanalytic Review, Fall 1958

It was only important

to smile and hold still,

to lie down beside him

and to rest awhile,

to be folded up together

as if we were silk,

to sink from the eyes of mother

and not to talk.

The black room took us

like a cave or a mouth

or an indoor belly.

I held my breath

and daddy was there,

his thumbs, his fat skull,

his teeth, his hair growing

like a field or a shawl.

I lay by the moss

of his skin until

it grew strange. My sisters

will never know that I fall

out of myself and pretend

that Allah will not see

how I hold my daddy

like an old stone tree.
