Salton Sea Stuff

I wrote this: In the middle of a thousand craggy rocks, palm trees and arid loners, the Salton Sea patiently laps against the sun bleached shores. Blue and white crests shimmer across its grand expanse, from a distance the Sea looks like a glorious watering hole, worth the journey through the empty terrible desert. Up close, disintegrated dreams fill the scenery, the pervasive illusion of an oasis completely overwhelmed by despair. A teardrop on the wrinkled face of an ancient desert, the Sea takes pride in performing its duty as the deserts badge of failure, a monument to stupidity and miscalculation, it’s dignity shriveled up on the shore, next to the fish, the birds, and the hope of man. thats it
