Clouds arrive at the pace
of oxen, stopping to drink
at the misshapen TV dish

picking up NASA signals.
The petrified cactus
near a humming Wurlitzer

says nothing. Lost travellers
stare at it by the bar,
hoping it might show them

the way, the bubbles in their
beer muttering

I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home


not noticing the clouds glowing
like lightbulbs with their electricity
and the entire desert moving
closer, ready to circle like moths.
Enjoy

The last bar in the Mojave by *Tigermoth99 takes reality and paints it with words into an elegant world that is both our own, and so fantastically not. "It uses just a few words to paint a haunting moment of loneliness." ( Suggested by zebrazebrazebra and Featured by nycterent )

Grew up in North Edwards next to Edwards Air Force base, went to school in Boron. Married a Marine stationed at Edwards AFB and now I live in the Lancaster Palmdale area.
