Overheard in the desert

Overheard in the desert

 

So we spoke,

with one hand on the gun–

 

oblique–

from the point of hearing,

 

not knowing

an end,

 

we spoke of unsent

letters in sealed drawers

 

and thus hinted

at inevitable

pain,

 

how the animals

change bones’

shape at will

 

how the stone you hold

is precious, depending

on light it withholds,

 

which may be

a story known

only in these parts
