Built for more than the cattle needed,
I reflect upon my one extravagance
now dry and cracked around its edges

like discarded dreams, having shed all guilt
exchanged for emptiness and worry
when every trail leads to Railroad Spring.

  3. We wish for green, but that is definitely the wrong shade and it is just barely July.
    South, across the mountains from you, we got a few drops of rain yesterday, and I felt guilty.
