Ghazal by Jana G. Younes
Ghazal takes us on a flirt journey with a game of time and its flow, where moving backwards seems as natural as forward.
- Ghazal in Arabic, is a form of amatory flirt or ode, originating in Arabic poetry.
A young woman is either getting ready to leave, or coming from a night out.
A young man is sitting in his chair, setting up domino pieces.
With a sudden power outage, both seem to be triggered by the light left in the space.
And what begins doesn’t seem to end, and what ends never seems to have been.
There is no such thing, at the level of love, that causes -must- precede effects.
Ghazal is a playful game of time and the direction of its flow.
