the desert…

oh god, living in the desert is the worst…

it’s harsh and cruel, and unforgiving…

it makes you beg for it emphatically…

after being seduced by it’s empty, neon promises…

but instead, you watch the roaches, as they scatter into the night…

hauling off bread crumbs and pieces of a spaghetti noodle…
you’ve never had to live like this, with this…

with filthy, dirty, disease carrying bugs roaming around…

like they’re leathered skinned, human counterparts…

pushing they’re carts full of bottles and cans, from point a to point b…

some with dogs, some with children, and some with no souls…

always moving, shifting from one place to another, searching always… 

for those ever elusive, dangling carrots…promising the world…

instead indeed, the hideous, awful truth that this is all there is in…

…the desert…
