My Pretty Girl by Amir Elzeni

I dream not
of yesterday's moon

but the two moons

in your eyes

the softness of us
when we touch

far away
from the world
far away
from our hurt

not knowing
what pretend

Amir Elzeni, USA

Amir Elzeni was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1966. Moved to America at age nine. Painfully shy and instinctively driven. He plays guitar a little. His music is the Blues (thanks to Buddy Guy), Jazz and Flamenco. He owned, operated and was the chef at a blues bar. Where he had the pleasure of booking many of the great /legendary blues artists, up and coming young cats and he is honored to say they became his friends and extended family. He was also lucky to meet a girl that he fell in love with in such a magical way.
