On Knees

on
knees
praying
deserted God
dark desert night
ruby red sand stains
feet fingers forehead flesh
desert sand smeared
dripping tears wet
low cries ensue
from mouth
kissing
Earth

in sun
in sand
cast left
to rot to dry
to pray

books read written
by men
letter words smudged
insincerity and flaws and lies
and silent defense mechanisms
