desert poem

does the sand under my feet
dream of the day
it was the bottom of
a shallow sea
sifting back and forth
rocked in warm currents
tickled by little
fins

the dry hills were
islands, then
fish hatched in their
rocky ribs
frogs sang and there were
birds

the wind cannot
even howl, now
nothing grows here to
give it a voice
