What do you laugh about, in the desert?
Where do you sit and contemplate?
These strangers with whom you find yourself -
Do you trust them?

What do you drink as you're getting to know?
Do the dunes shelter you from vicious past-truths
These strangers that you may never have met -
Do you trust them?

Where do you rest your sun-scared eyes
When the cold creeps in over the sand?
These strangers to whom I owe your keep -
Can I trust them?
