BETTER TO MADDEN THE DESERT THAN TO LIVE THERE

Interior deserts,

Vague litanies for someone who died leaving all the doors open.

A gray cloak over another cloak of no color.

Excessive densities.

Even the wind casts a shadow.

Mockery of the landscape.

Nothing left to call to but a flat dark sun or an endless rain.

Or wipe out the landscape with the wind and its shadow.

And there is one further resort: 

drive the desert mad until it turns into water and drink itself.

It is better to madden the desert than to live there
