It pushed inside of me, all of these shattering people

walking around the earth doing prosaic and brilliant things,

breathing the same air that is centuries old

Before I moved here I was nowhere

There are entire words I never used:

Canyon wash, fry bread, xerophyte

Before I had a chance to leave, I reformed

into the liquidless air, the mute desert sand,

The reflected salt mountains, echoing on.
