A group on the horizon has eyes

that are red and glowing

over what is left of their species.

She stands and tells her children

not to fear for they have taken

the seeds of life with them wherever they

go and her son says that

he is afraid that he heard

mention of place where the earth splits

and erupts with salt, that

it will swallow all the

water that’s left.  “My

cousin told me for it, before

the fires came.” She is a queen

and her future

is desert.
