The Yellow Desert Poems

The Yellow Desert, paper collage, 2020

i.
the notion of being civilized is 
heightened by shadows
 
an infinite crust of time
a sense of music to hold onto
 
at the center of 
dawn, earth cries
—is vibrant, mellow, happy
 
we are the bystanders
relics of liquid freedom

ii.
the mind breathes in 
strange waves 
 
dense 
like an underwater 
cyclone
 
microcosms of ecstasy 
space castles and 
vast stretches of untamed
yellow wilderness

wander
you have achieved an 
anonymous 
sense of freedom
 
iii.
for the loss of souls and 
high strange 
moonward dances
there’s never been a world 
so unreachable as this
