gobbling both sand and lizard
with impunity

  1. Die Sonora Wüste – ich kenne sie, seit ich als Kind “Karl May” gelesen habe 😉
    The “Sonora Desert” – I know this name, since I read “Karl May” as a child.
    . . . but I didn`t see the desert, when I visited California. We didn’t come south of San Diego.

      Really, I don’t see emptiness in your work, but a reaching deeper into the well. You haven’t (in my opinion) reached the desert yet. Keep writing! 🙂
