Desert
unknown

I know its snowing somewhere,
 1
but who could beat a horse so hard
 2
against this arid desert.
 3
 
 
We should probably quit right now,
 4
drink our sweat
 5
and boil our leggings to eat,
 6
but the desert night prophesies
 7
let slip an oasis on the horizon.
 8
 
 
I am just a simple cattle herder,
 9
and prefer a swatch exactly on the brand,
 10
where it hurts more. But I
 11
have also seen the sargraso heal,
 12
the surprising coolness of the
 13
desert's night air fortify a mortal shot,
 14
and people forget their names.
