the desert

Here we are again
talking about the weather
the safe rain
the squash plants
the baking heat
the lawn mower
the snow
the bread and milk

I will not pour down
drops of myself
for you
I will not burn with
I will not say words
that fall in a white hush
to bring you peace

The desert does not
concern itself when
the weather
never changes
