January Valentine

The coldness of the world
even here in the desert
comes with a calm ferocity
challenging us to exist
in the face of its hate and spite
not unlike the calmness
of the world in the face of
our indifference our delight
that the world is our waste
all that we’ve disowned
in our descent
all that we’re reclaiming
in our long climb
from slime to crime
