A stray dog pulls apart a donkey’s corpse.
A camel pacing into the rushlight stomps on
mini sand-ruins of treads and tracks:
What did this: a quad bike, a Humvee?
A shadow lengthens on the beach.
Stars glow in Hi Rises inland from the sea’s edge.
People live in a bright hour, as Emerson said.
The bright falls. The night rises.
