"The desert bears only a scathing sun, and nothing more."
"What about mirages?"

When the sun burns out,
what will we have but our premonitions?
and when the oil runs out,
and we reach the fallout
and people drag themselves from the gutter
to the trash heap
what will we have?

When our time on earth ends,
what will we have but our preconceptions?
We won't comprehend
when we reach the road's end
and there is nothing left to lend
or take to the trash heap,
what will we have?


  1. Visionary. If you really look around, it's not hard to see we are in trouble, especially environmentally. Check out the doc "Manufactured Landscapes" - you can probably find it at the Library or even Youtube.

  2. Wow. A really thoughtful, insightful piece. Love it.
