Drink More Water

Waves lifting and rippling from pavement

signature aura of heat.

No man’s land. Yet she wanders further

she sees it in the distance.

Drink more water.

The truth is just beyond the horizon.

Sweat trickles, slowly, in meandering fashion

down with gravity’s seduction.

Losing faith, losing heart

seeking more than just mirage.

Drink more water.

The truth is just beyond the horizon.

Dry, baron, crackling land

even the wind carries the dust.

Only still a little further to go.

Glancing back looks like the beginnings

of regret.

Drink more water.

The truth is just beyond the horizon.

Tongues lick lips

rough surface, parched and wizened.

Out here in no man’s land

where the truth is always

just a sip away.
