Outrunning Our Messengers

IMG_6759We outrun our splendid messengers
who amble about within

in a race we think we’re in
and even then

they stand along the route
to offer water for our drought
which we clutch in desperation
to slake the thirsty migration
spilling our allocation
as we reach the destination
