A meditation on struggle.

Returning

by Steve Marsden

Dry, so dry is this desert

It thirsts for your sandy bones to crack with a squeak and crumble

Cold, so cold and so inert

You freeze to yourself

and your warmth leaves you like a soul in hell

You gasp and arch in pain

knowing all you can leave is a shell
