Unsafe Spaces

We keep some forests so there remain places where anything can happen. They stretch well beyond the zone of civility -- here no man's law slows or prevents any action. The state's threat of theft, imprisonment, or death holds no sway in nature. Upon entry to the wild, you accept open possibility and are thereby more alive.

The desert does not offer swaths of trees and enticing coverage, instead tempting with its vastness. If the dry heat doesn't gradually cook you and steal away your fluids, crafty creatures who need a meal will take a bite, or intersect with you from a perceived misunderstanding about encroaching on their home or young.

The desire for a safe space is the fantasy of hiding from nature, putting truth and consequences off limits, wanting to believe neither exists.
