To Live And Die In Arizona


Arizona is one of the most depressed places in the United States

Living (And Dying) In Arizona

Sad Tales of the Desert: A Poem By Edelmann & Vetterli


Serpent Moves

I’m moving, I’m changing
I might find myself
Out in the desert’s land
Raise the moon
Call the dead
Touch the sky
Curse the sand

I might
Leave myself
Out in
The desert’s land
Like the serpent
Glides from its skin
With gentle moves
On floors of sin

– Chris Vetterli & Marky Edelmann

Sad Tales of the Desert: A Poem By Jeff Martin


A Line in the Sand

Tell me what would you do
If I told you the truth
And I took you by the hand
To see the dust swirl in pools 
And a dark desert cool
In an empty wasted land

Tell me, what would you do
If this happened to you
Would it help you now
To understand
There’s a line in the sand, a line in the sand
It’ll keep you from the promised land
It’s just a line in the sand

And what would you say
If I told you today
That your mother won’t hold your hand anymore
She’s broken and tired
She’s inflamed with desire 
To turn her head and walk away 
From the line in the sand, the line in the sand
It’ll keep you from the promised land
It’s just a line in the sand
It’s gonna keep you from the promised land 

The refineries burn
And your mother she turns
To watch you stumble into the night
She’s run out of tears
Have you run out of fear
Or is your candle still burning bright
You’ve crossed the line in the sand, the line in the sand
It’s gonna keep you from the promised land
It’s just a line in the sand

An Unwilling Return to Arizona from My Temporary Escape


image

The photo you see is the area where I was spending vacation. There was water, trees and rain. Having grown up there, I was surprised to find those elements as a big deal. It felt comfortable and good to be home again. Unfortunately, it came to an end.
