We were neon

Electric lovers in blue twilight

Like passionate candles dancing

Glowing, Glowing into the night.

 

Desert worn and weary

We stood beneath vacant skies

Street signs on highways to nowhere

Halos - Beacons to sleepless eyes.

 

We woke as shaman.

The Navajo moon - perfect - calm

Coyotes howl - synthetic

Drums beating to peyote dawn
