Naked wastelands of monotony
Exhausting days of bruising suns
Under a lee of memory 
Wayward winds churn crystals to dust

Time evaporates into slips of silence
Arid air mourns its temperamental loss

Minerals and molecules of undiscovered days
Deep in the silt where Past meets Future
Self walks Presently into an unknown phase
