Tonight

I took a drive through the desert tonight. I didn’t have a destination. I followed the road. There was no one else around so I shut off my headlights. I was driving by moonlight.

I was so entranced that I didn’t realize how far I had driven and I ran out of gas. The car stopped and I got out. I walked. The moon illuminated the cactus. I could see the needles.

I kept walking. I could see the outlines of the desert creatures running across the desert floor. I think I saw a coyote. There was a rattlesnake. An armadillo crossed in front of me.

I came to a pond. I took off my clothes and I went into the black water. That was the last I saw of me.
