Science Fiction Desert Planet

Do you remember the headlights–
How we buried ourselves in the
Ditch each time? Or the loose gravel,
Sand-coated streets in that little
Town, and how we flew down, nothing
But shoes between our feet and the
Pavement? Or maybe that night we
Got lost in the wilderness of
Suburban development, the
Hills of sand like something from a
Science fiction desert planet?
I remember how the moon shone
Down and cast you in an icy
Fire as you stood atop the dune,
Fearless, young, like a pagan god
Shooting out from the birthing pyre.
