He does not suffer from drought,
nor from loneliness
when he travels the arid lands.
The camel simply understands
the oasis is there.

And when he rests, he has arrived.
He Does Not Suffer by Hugo J.K. de Vries

arrived, you have arrived.
and although now you can fly,
the ground still remains below.

no selection of words
should exist as absurd,
as those used to pain a heart so.
