STAY AWAY

The desert curls itself up

flat at night

 

an uncaring landscape

off sand and spiders

 

day’s heat retreats into

silence,

leaving behind

a numbing cold

 

cacti stand guard over

nothing

 

snakes slither into holes

under useless rocks

 

scavenger animals prowl

without much to show

 

the terrain

is life without a soul

 

night and day are equal

with little to offer
