Desert

The sand would pour on us like rain.
Their wonder is silk soft ,woman-like,
A God,not ‘al’ God, not different from
Our Sea ,Mountain God, a windy one.
And a desert is so much like our sea.
They both would make us mere grain.

Desert

Desert is lots of sand in the hair-roots
And upon a funnily high camel’s back
With your belly fire going up and down
As belly jiggles, up and down shrill notes
Against a night holding down woman.
Let the sun plummet to its sand bottom.
Hold on tight, will you, the ship is down
To its bottom essentials ,near the sun.
The sun is turning in a fiery barbecue.
