                                  may we wash sand
                                  burning under the sun’s wrath
                                  in snow in mountain ranges of the east
                                  blood flowing in hot springs
                                  from the heart dripping down to the head
                                  u

                                  as our noses smell rotten flesh & dry bones
                                  with the sands we left our footprints on
                                  as we ran from rabid dogs home one night
                                  hunting for the moon far & beyond horizons.
