This Desert Island, Jaydaville

by Anthony Perdue

On a Sunday afternoon at One Thirty

The AM radio station gave out its call letters

The announcer introduced the show

Sound effect of a sandstorm rising in volume than lowering

The sandstorm had a voice

Telling us that we are traveling across time

Hearing the same things

Taking us to This Desert Island, Jaydaville

A California desert city

Where time travelers, artifacts that speak and people

Who are seldom what they seem

Join deadmen and others

Who tell their tales

Among others like themselves

On a Sunday afternoon at One Thirty

This Desert Island, Jaydaville was explored
