flawed introspection

 Blurred vision and flawed introspection. The
 land is unknown. The people are strangers.
 Days stagnant. Heat filled with gnats. Time
 dripping slowly. Sexuality. Nights of a flawed
 silence. Two pillows and a blanket. No sheet
 and deep sleep. Bared feet and a fan. What
 sadness? A test of patience. Space between,
 desire and fruition. A life shallow and sordid.
