wakeup call

on the edge of the forest
a dessert is a harsh wakeup call
roots rise up above the ground to breathe in water
because even that makes more sense than to dig down deep

and the sand whispers in the twilight of the day
whipping at spaces that haven’t been seen by a soul
in more than seventy years
