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
