mojave thought
unknown

this mind's a desert
 1
i've lost the mojave thought-
 2
you distract
 3
all my cranial capacity
 4
as you occupy and cloud
 5
 
 
 
 
the space in between
 6
 
 
 
 
at a loss, or lost neurons
 7
finding a home;
 8
deliberate subconscious
 9
you don't have to pay rent
 10
in the wild

i like it when you don't know if you're going to make it, can't feel like you can make another step. get naked, but then there's always some god damned off-roader stinking up the world and laughing at you -- which makes the desert seem like a parking lot in one of those cheap apartments full of t.v.s and crack consumers.

good place for nuke tests.

death valley is so alive that anything actually alive there seems several times alive. but mojave as metaphor is apt.

L5 - "it" not "them."  Whether or not the pronoun modifies the subjects, "capacity" or "space," they're both singular.  

Also, some better use of white space would spread this out a little more and give it some extra body.  Finally, some slight punctuation wouldn't hurt.  I like it, but just needs to be shaped a little better.  I get the idea tho.  :-)
