    The thin man held no answer
    he bent and swayed
    struggling to focus through the last mirage of water
    remorseless thoughts rolling unrelenting tornadoes
    through his shrunken heart and wispy head
    settling an empty groan in discomfort on his stomachs pit

    The shallows of his sockets could not glean
    a single spec of truth from arid dust
    his heart lay dug
    eyes brimming with graves
    he could not keep life from pretending today

    Unfashioned words grind his tongue on bitter teeth
    sharp stammering but cannot form speech
    words of supplication stick dry cracking to his lips
    so the thin man shook silently
    holding the sculling shovel of his love
    clenched tenderly in skeleton hands

    The thin woman trembled on teetering knees
    she could not forget expansive shifting winds
    moving over green open plains
    his woman will not wail
    her dark water eyes rotating
    fix the demon spitting from the skies
    emanating its parched and brittle blessing
    forever howling
    drying silence is her answer to its thirstless demand

    So thin he is
    shirt flapping at the flagging breeze
    defies the strength of his boneless knees
    topples like a withered tree
    reasonless love now lay in their coverlet of fruitless earth
    pleading for the foreign alms
    there is no water left to drown the conflicts of his tears

    She wishes the acid of his belly would quench a burning memory
    there are no clues to these little mounds
    laying beneath his spade and grinding fist
    their faces have gone with all their unanswered questions
    in his stomach a tornado rages on

    Their children have succumbed choking their last on the food of their starvation
