“We bring ourselves sand” by Anna Bernat

We bring ourselves sand
bags at a time
straight from the desert
first we pour in our eyes
I in yours and you in mine
then we heat this sand
in the sun
maybe someone will get burned
maybe someone will collapse

And later only the wind
can lay us in the dust
not accordingly to seniority
not according to virtue
— but just because
