Dust Storm
©2019 Michael R. J. Roth

Your love was always shameless
as the offer of a rose
in the hand of a street vendor
with a diamond in his nose

There's a cloud on the horizon
And a dust storm on its way
To sand away my memories
And shutter up the windowpanes

The last time you laid eyes on me
You knew that I would lie
About who won the war of love
And how I might survive


There's an old dog on the sidewalk
With a bare patch on his back
Rubbed away by tenderness
Sometimes I feel like that

I suppose I should be on my way
But what am I to do?
That dust storm
That dust storm
Is you
