©2005 Jeff Bohnhoff

If what’s done is done
Why won’t the wind forget?
Blowing sand that cuts like glass,
Fragments of the past.
Across the high desert.

Lightning on the distant peaks,
But it doesn’t feed the grid.
High tension in the wires,
Goes to ground beneath our tires.
We cross the high desert.

We tune the radio
To a station far away.
Ghostly voices move us,
Though we can’t hear what they say.
The blacktop snakes and coils,
A scar that cuts the land.
And we do all that we can
To cross the desert.

We stop around mid day
At a town that has no name.
Just a wide spot on the road,
An old woman selling polished stones,
Collected from the high desert.

Cataracts cloud eyes of blue,
Reflect back her inner light.
It leaks from every pore
But she smiles and says no more
Deep in the high desert.

We tune the radio
To a station far away.
Ghostly voices move us,
Though we can’t hear what they say.
The blacktop snakes and coils,
A scar that cuts the land.
And we do all that we can
To cross the desert.

Lightning on the distant peaks,
But it doesn’t feed the grid.
High tension in the wires,
Goes to ground beneath our tires.
We cross the high desert.

Dusty day to purple dusk.
We bundle up against the chill.
We see other moving lights.
They gather in the night.
A caravan across the desert.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
