Tears in the Desert
Water that leaves the eyes,
demands a good stiff drink
with rings on the table
afterward . . .
does not indulge in evaporation
but insist on a lifetime expectancy.
Its not true that there are fewer tears
in the desert because rain is scarce.
Water comes from deeper sources
some man made
and prized as desert refuges.
Plants there are woody
and are spaced
farther apart like faces
that grieve in isolation. And yet
the refuges remain when
rivers run dry. And tears
