Waste ©

A bottle of water spilt in a desert

Dripped, drop by drop

Onto grains of the earth’s bone

The sun’s scorching rays reach to catch

Blistering heat pulses upwards

But the drips drop

Careless grains suck,

draining each of potential

until there is no water,

until there is a bottle

empty; or with something lost?
