Escape and Evade
A dark speck in the blistering aridness. The heat radiates from the ground in a shimmering haze as a camel plods, one padded step after another—a rolling, swaying, sea-swept gait. The rider slumps low in the saddle, a red stain marks white robes from right shoulder to waist. Eyes stare blindly through turbaned wraps. Water. Water.
