BET

the scorched earth that dust shoes and sink into socks

The old oasis under ground

Let me walk home in this heat

Desert rats

Shuffling through the city that never sleeps

The heat cooks our brains

Let us turn on the AC

Before our skin singes

It fried her brain 

as she offered desert rats 

as a control group

A placebo

On a platter

Let’s gamble
