Barren

Shaven head and acid.  A grim reminder of a pale afternoon. There is nothing here.  Nothing to sustain us.  We tried.  We ate the grass, the dirt, the sky.  We raked the flesh from each others arms and sucked at the wounds.  We stared at each other, bitter and aggressive.  Like dogs.  Like children.  We […]
