Heels of evening

Heels of evening
Tread I
Hurry must
Evening inside takes me

Words, voices, eyes
Disperse along
Fugitive their echo

Heels of evening
Romp I
Across of land
Fly I without roots

New salted sea I smell
Drought plague
But stay in hot desert

Heels of evening
in preson I live,
in thorn I stab
listen distress inside

Heels of evening
Run I
Crescent above me
It does not unloose me

Heels of evening
Walk I
Rambler afterglow
