cracked earth

cracked earth.

in another season
there will be
rivers of life flowing
in the fingers and slits
between these peeling
anchored islands.

the gentle curve upward along the banks.
the dip in the middle, shallow and smooth.
your touch leaving a slip of dust
on my own finger.

oh, earth.
