Juan Olivarez (september 12 / nyssa oregon)
Ashes To Ashes
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
Mixing with the desert sands.
Drifting with the sudden gusts,
Slowly covering the land.
The perfect place to spend forever,
Always warm and always dry.
And at the end of my endeavors,
In the Mojave, I would lie.
