listless
we weave
like serpents buried in sand
hot with hiding from
unyielding sun

a snarl of tumbleweed rolls
through swathes of sand
looking for something
out there in the
wasteland

the reeds in
a scum filled pond
reach for heaven
with roots already drowned

and finally 
pendulous night falls,
pulling lethargy from
coal mine budgerigar  
who remembers 
too late what
her life is for.
