The Deserts of Dubai

A caravan of clutter,

Skateboards, ninja-swords,

Camping on the sands,

Nomads: five.

A forest of logistics,

Valleys of farewells,

Rivers flowing tears

All crossed: over.

Memories replaying,

Friendships on a loop,

Our guiding light, sleep, space.

Heaven-sent: all.

Emptiness in searing heat,

Stillness sun-dries tears,

Desiccated salt-tracks but we’re

Intact: fact.
