POEMS FOR THE PLANET - Desert

Desert

rats desert a desert planet
desert creeps into the grasslands
creeps up to the doors of cliff high houses
up river beds backpackers wander new trails
river lips crack like crazed fields
lips craving drooling streams and water falling
craving around shrinking parch-towns
around desert island city wind roads
desert rats even desert a drying planet
