Desert Song

Put one foot in front,
follow the other.

Why don’t you
keep your mouth

shut or sand will fill the empty
vessel of your hour

-glass, counting down the spilt
seconds to extinction?  Never

peer through the sheer blind
fold, Mother said was a necessary

precaution to prevent sunstroke.
There’s no place beyond

burning.  Just listen
to the hymns of the white

wind and the listless
cries of children.
