Let It Come Our Way

A steady desert breeze, swallows the oasis with dusty thirst
and we lie alone, finding shelter in the sand taken for granted
plants still grow in a peculiar way, we remain transient
on the move to our destination in the West along the ridge
so many have taken this road, you can hear their voices
stars are what you see mingle with serenity for your behalf
hailing wars and empires left to collapse, footsteps erased
two pairs regardless wind their way to renegade camps
forsaken by the industry, perimeter highwaymen nowhere to be found
still rambling about the lay-off, appearance shaped by choice
throwing down his drink to describe a case to citizens nearby
open collar with the cross hanging, hypnotic train of thought
below sonar prisms are endorsing life beyond the grave
his step retains its command, in the face of terror
unconvinced by the painstaking traditions of society
in the valley he was brought up in obscurity
sanity was a product of the character of his caretakers
disappointed years thereafter to look for wisdom in the desert
encounters with Gods of sky and sea, Adam given his eden
bleach the sky instead of praying for rain that never comes
so me and my love, we continue to hear the tales of dwellers
intuitive degrees for fidelity, don’t ask me the reason
circumstance unleashed a prophet to the barren plain
he came to us to answer what the rumor meant
it was in this time we realized he had lured us here
to the oasis far from any contact, apprehensive ownership
glorified, the stones moved to take the form of a gateway
I’ll speak no more of the desert where it ended
without tragedy or the choice to leave
it became my soul’s home
because I believed
