Give yourself to the forest. Drive that dagger deep into your chest. Lay bloodied and broken. Let the earth swallow you up. The dandelions are infinite in that field where your body lies. Let the sun pour over you. Dress your body in sparkling light.
Sandstorm 05:42
We entered the sandstorm at dawn, with faces wrapped in shredded flags. We knew we wouldn't last long, our eyes burning like funeral pyres. We walked until our spindly legs would carry us no more. We set up camp in the belly of a beast, wide as a whale and twice as long. We barely made it through the night. You coughed and wheezed like a dying man. I pondered cutting out your heart just to find that eternal light. Your flesh became a thousand lines, intersecting all this way and that. I tried not to look into your eyes but they were as black as a moonless midnight. Crawl out from your barren body, that hallow hearth made from earth and mortar. Look up at the sky. The sandstorm has finally passed us by. The night, stretched so far and wide. And all I can do is close my eyes and put out the fire.


I pondered cutting out your heart
