Blind eyes

See me
through blind eyes
The savannah of my dreams
Where all is arid land –
Plain and dry;
Rarely a tree grows like a canopy
Neither the grass
Subdue, the cry of pain
Where lions roar like a cat
And zebras marks a cut on their skins.
Lame; angry elephants pull the skies, and
Mosquitoes grow a sharp thorn
Still
I spread miles and miles
in beauty and expanse
Yet
I burn like a perennial fire
Dark soot
Bellowing in the night
