zyzyx (after the Mojave Desert)

runnin' through the desert
crawlin' throught the sulphur
a rhino ran me off
lizards on the after-burner
i'm a prophet i hitched a ride

i'm going to zyzyx to bath in the holy water
and sleep in the cracked adobe

murky minds rustle milkweed
stampin' out the tarantella
the borax in my teeth
i wrestled like gila
monsters on the toxic tide

i'm going to zyzyx to wash it all off
and fan myself with some fronds

when i go to zyzyx
my shelf-life will be restored
