Hurricane, Utah

In 100, by Amy on November 2, 2018 at 1:30 pm

Man. Woman. Naked.

Elemental.

Pitch black sky. Speckled sky.

An empty desert. Refreshingly lonesome.

Nearby, a cave with petroglyphs.

Campfire.

 

“We need more wood.”

Headlamps on and iphones out.

0.25 mile radius expedition commences.

One violently shakes the shrubs, pulling off dead limbs.

The other swigs Jim Beam and squints out at the horizon.

They stagger on, until,

“Enough to freshen the fire.”

 

Absurdist dancing and howling.

Unknown amount of time passes.

A drunken finale.

 

“I DARE you to add one more log to the fire. Your log.”  

“ACCEPTED.”

— one carefully squats above fire.

 

Oh instigating Jim!

 

Friends.

Lovers.

  1. Such good rhythm in this piece!
