Wind and Sand






Wind and Sand

 


 

the ambiguity

of their face

inspires

imperturbable insolence,

amused malice.

 

what delusions

if not

broken fragments

of undisguised illusions

hide

in a heart of glass?

 

they scream blasphemies

echoing soundless

through the stifling silence

of timeless sarcophagi

buried

in desert sand

 

where the wind evokes changes

to purge the body

of

sickening damnation

 

where the wind evokes purity

from a motionless wait

of

death

 

until they come undone

in a jar of clay.
