Over concrete floodplains rivers flow

nameless footsteps splashing along

toward communion with the godhead

maybe never to find more than shallow waters

or fields withered in the sun

Still the dust rules over all

one face exchanged for another

to stare back at the mirror with new eyes

false reflections given up

in sacrifice to something sacred

breathing slowly at the heart of it all

and dying

Embrace the absurdity.
