COLD VENGEANCE

its where the pavement ends

and road signs are shot to death

 

scattered sickly scrub brush

with harpoon needles

waits for victims

 

sweeping lizard tail art

marks ancient sand,

evidence of survival

 

everything breathing or

searching for water

is the appetite of the desert,

a soulless vacuum encouraging

the line to be crossed,

daring with innocent silence

the challenge to be taken
