He drives into the desert in a Toronado, Dust in his eyes from the open window, Sun on the burned skin and black mascara That augments his vivid gaze. Black orbs that stare at the burning sand, His mouth is defiant and morose, He turns off the path into the sage and saguaro. The car is like a black beetle on a carpet of tan. He lifts a shovel from the trunk, looking crazed. Digs a shallow grave in the sand, He rips a talisman from his neck And declares he is looking for something Unclear and he slurs a chant. “Something is coming”, he seems to say. He buries the necklace and drives away. Will he come back for it or leave it for the spirits of the desert? No, he will come for it every day Bury it again and again Until the spell wears down, The perfumed season is done, Or perhaps the spring floods Wash it all away.
Based on a silly advert for perfume, with Johnny as a superstitious rebel! I had to make a "story" of it, just for laughs.
