Into The Desert

Author: Clare Olivares

All day I wanted to seep into the red rock
bake my bones with sweet heat
char my eyes to clarity
fashion a sling
carry my heavy heart
into the cool darkness of your core

All night I wanted to pour the stars into my skin
feel the pinpricks enter my marrow
tenderly capture the cricketโ€™s cry
float to the universe of stars
and want more than I could see
