Mojave Telephone

a ringing in the ears
has mined itself
into my brain

driving me
hell batty
ten speeding

long distances
with reluctant
urgency

to a desert
where a way
was made

in the wasteland
a river,
an answer

i am a receiver
the sole confessor
to them

the many, desolate
thirsty, desperate
waterlogged souls
