The Desert

By Tom Probasco

Borne by dreams and desperation,

we’re taken to the edge

of the desert,

and out into it.

There to contend

with heat and cold and mirages,

until our final day and night

and illusion.

But some they say

find an oasis,

or learn magic

and make their own.

There to gather strength

to push on through

and view the beautiful,

undrinkable ocean.

Tom Probasco has had poems published in INPRINT (Indianapolis Free University Writers’ Center), the first volume of Indiannual (Writers’ Center of Indianapolis), and the Northwest Indiana Literary Journal, and in addition to writing the occasional poem, he plays harmonica in two Indianapolis bands, The Full Benefits Band and True North.
