Desert heat

After too many weeks of
	positively negative
	temperatures
eyes closed to the coddling sun
	60’s patterns of orange dancing on
	the insides of my eyelids
natural vitamin D
	soaking through skin
	to strengthen bones
unusual wind creating
	sounds of breaking ocean waves
	where spiny cacti stand
I lie quiescent, replete
	mind floating untethered
        above the desert sand.
