The desert curls itself up

flat at night


an uncaring landscape

off sand and spiders


day’s heat retreats into


leaving behind

a numbing cold


cacti stand guard over



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
