A Desert in the Making


I stand afar and watch the meltdown
Throughout these cities and towns
Without a sound
Upon my face - a frown

The lava flow
Spreading its coal
Knows where to go
Not high - but low

I listen to the murmur
this concrete infrastructure
Dissolving to naught - in the temperature
Geo thermal fire - as it swelters

Leaving behind its perspiration
Continuing its path of destruction
Stripping all to its foundation
And then as if in elation

All it touches as it mates
Its hunger it seeks to satiate

At last I see this entity
Meet water - become humidity
To pour its heat into infinity
Once again achieve validity

I slowly turn and walk away
my world sizzles in decay
