DESERT

There's a crow that follows me

Even now he's watching my every move

Tonight

 

It is cold

 

And the moon is gone

 

There is no light for me in this desert

But only here is there the space to contain

 

What threatens to utterly destroy me

Body and soul

And so I come here

I think about my brother

 

Every minute !

 

Of every moment !

Of every day

But I can't let the light see it

 

So I bury it

 

Cover over it with the sand

Why him?

 

Why?

Tonight

 

It is cold

 

And the moon is gone

 

There is no light for me in this desert

    I like the mood you create but tell me more -- is your brother dead or why do you keep thinking of him or is it just brotherhood in general?
