Water

The desert is forgotten by humanity
so the cacti grow unhindered.
Look at their spirals!
Watch their slow dancing!
They’ve become skyscrapers
and automobiles; they—
they have formed bridges
and walkways and highways and
and they, and they, and
and they’ve formed airports for us—look!
Yes, for us… I’m sure of it.
They’ve missed—God, they’ve missed us!
I was afraid. I was so terribly afraid
that no-one would notice
once we’d gone.
