22. Clover

It was effortless.

He did not move
from where he sat, but
dipped
like a long giraffe
moving its nose
to water.

He said, “I am lucky.”

For six days, I scoured
that green Sahara
dizzy & cross-eyed with
triplicates.

I found nothing.

They say to find water
in the ocean
is effortless, but

in the desert
you get tricked
by the sand.
