MOJAVE

THE DRUNKEN MOON
STAGGERS ACROSS THE SKY,
AND CRASHES TO THE GROUND.
AFTER A NIGHT
OF DRINKING MESCAL
IN A MESTIZO BORDER TOWN.
AND, WHILE THE WHIRLING PLANETS
BEAR WITNESS TO THIS SCENE,
I LIE SLUMBERING ON THE SAND,
AND DREAM THE STRANGEST DREAM.

A MIRAGE OF CORONADO
APPEARS IN THE SHIMMERING HEAT,
WITH HIS BAND OF CONQUISTADORS
EXPLORING A GOLDEN STREET.
TO THE SEVEN CITIES OF CIBOLA,
IN SEARCH OF ANCIENT TREASURE,
AND MORE WEALTH
THAN THE ROYAL COURT OF SPAIN
COULD EVER MEASURE.

AND, WHILE I LIE SLEEPING,
IN THIS VALLEY OF JOSHUA TREES,
THE STARS SHINE DOWN
LIKE CASTILIAN SILVER,
ON THE MOJAVE.
ON THE MOJAVE.
