STAY AWAY

The desert curls itself up

flat at night

 

an uncaring carnage of sand

and spiders

 

day’s heat retreats into

silence, leaving a numbing damp cold

 

cactus stand guard over

barren and nothing

 

snakes slither into holes

and under useless rocks

 

scavenger animals prowl

without much to show

 

it’s lifeless and without soul

 

night and day are equal

with nothing to offer
