i am weakened, deafened by
the static we create
these
meaning
meaning
meaningless
voices in my brain

 

drop me in the desert
let it tear my limbs from me
let it starve and blind and maim me
let it hollow, desecrate
and with its silence smothering
let it rescue me

 

 

 
re-

drop me in the desert

don't rescue me

let me burn in sunshine

let me freeze in starlight

let me tumble 'cross the valley floor

in winds that howl and scream

set
