a desert without sand
lonely they must be

twisted burning crust of
the thing they used to be

seething tongues of blood
squeaks that cut like briars

tortured by themselves
our gnashing little liars

it’s only love they need
a bucket want of fill

caress them with
a rusted blade

head thumping
down the hill
