Sahara Dust

Trying to think what else we need these days.


oh that's it. A dust storm.


Dust


kicked from the hooves of traveling Bedouin


camels


Or lifted from the goodyears of range rovers

rolling across the mighty Sahara


Flies in a great curve across the ocean


and murkies Our skies


as we wait for


the plague of locust with their grinding


song


above the fields of devouring rabbits


screaming as only rabbits can-

i want it all
