drying ink tag

heat winds scour skies whiter
than your gleaming teeth. light
filters through the storm. your
voice like winter in the desert,
too little rain to blossom / your
heart a perpetual drought, torn
raw & wanting by dry air.
 
(question: do gentle things
grow in the desert?)
 
shield my eyes from your shine.
sand grits like sugar in my
mouth, rock worn smooth.
time unleashed across the horizon
carves an arc overhead, and you
smile, all your sky-white mouth
opening wide.
 
(answer: only if you
water them.)
