desert of dreams

after switching off the exhaust
air conditioner
and fan
silence of the night gives way
to humming of far away road
crawling heavy vehicles…

draught beer
camels in the desert of dreams
parched throat
my own noise of water
fridge opens itself to close

waves materialise
bodies emit salt
bedroom a seashore

wrap the rap
twining the twins
light at the end of the tunnel
blaring alarm
it is dawn another day
