BORN IN A DROUGHT

Pogue Canyon – March 25, 2014

 

Islands of bare, red clay
on shallow green receding—
seeds that never swelled

to root ceramic slopes
or went with clouds
from cloven hooves—

stare back sternly.
She is dry,
nothing left to offer

the eye—only
the lone calf
grazing shores

for the overlooked
knows no better
world than this.
