Of Dust and Death

Of Dust and Death


Photography by Jack Antal featuring Austin Dixon | Words by Ben Giese
In collaboration with RAEN

the lone rider moves with the wind

to the west

through a sea of dust and death



scorned by the sun

forsaken by heaven and earth

a thousand miles from nowhere



the land of illusion and delusion

of serpents and skeletons

eternal stars and holy nights



but there are no gods here

only devils

and the lost souls of the west



the long shadows of ancient saguaros

that still sing hymns of yesterday

of outlaws and gunslingers



and the lone rider

headed west

with the setting sun
