The Desert Knows

Too much is barren or wilderness

to know what shadows lie between

hiding from our wretched eyes

in the calm at the heart of many storms

Crawling in the occult deep

at the edge of every nightmare

holding on to some shred of power won

in games of ritual

The desert knows

the desert knows what walks beneath the stars

What legend, whether you believe it’s real or not, scares you the most?
