#OctPoWriMo 2021 — Day 16: “Water Wars”




Water Wars

world change
in one day-dream,
water wars
force the nomadic

higher ground
is exposure,
underneath
holds less poison

techno fevers
storm us in bursts,
unlock a thirst
sensor, gob throats

space deserted,
the loneliness
of voided stars,
vastness of desire

earth on fire,
flared tantrums
& hoarded droplets
of suppressed nourishment

astral viewing
of a near future,
an inner meteor
lighting the way

waking to
another day
without rainfall,
sweating concern
