a deadly vast searing wasteland of sand dunes mountain high
The expansive buckle of the world's desert belt void of color

when thorns of selfishness
were topped with roses of kindness.

When so much that we valued

with the ardor of endless nostalgic pursuit I traced

Even folks that are not attracted to feet
