Desert Wounds

The Light is On

Salt on skin bare to the sun burns like that high fire

flowing through canals from scar to scar

strange constellations etched in living skin

a mythology of flesh and blood

defiant to the sun and wind and desert sand

New scars and a story yet to be written

alchemical tales that whisper of a way out

but never away from the æternal flame

gentle in the eyes of a desert wraith

who sits scratching secrets into the sand

to be buried on the long march across the dunes
