Namib Desert

Angling in the surf
on the Skeleton Coast –
where old vessels ran aground.

Next to a shipwreck,
obscured by fog and haze,
a brown hyena
scavenges on a carcass.

Waves of dunes continue into the desert
– death traps in the shifting sands.
Here, compass bearings start to waver 
and directions become unclear.

Any journey is a fatal odyssey.
These are the badlands of human endurance.
