Desert Song

Desert Song

written by: Godfrey Holy and Tanya Rakh


when all of these
sandstorms are silent
and our ghosts
have lost all their names
I will live as silk around you
an opal under your oasis

bury me broken in open
wind, seismic and howling
our fractured songs cut
horizons through alien
dunes, centuries of ruins
a fatherless heart line

my nearest sun, it glows here
spins blue constellations,
a pulse between our
quicksilver hands, this
sweat and sulfur breathing

we drink almond dreams
and golden memories, ever
haunt these sharp, corroded
spires where we gladly
lose our souls
