We have been warned
by hot Valley gusts
surging up canyon
for a week of evenings—

by weathermen:
ten-day broil,
triple-digit teens—

to pump water, irrigate,
keep tanks and troughs full,
augment the garden,
out at daylight
and in by ten

as days dehydrate
and clay and granite rock
cook all night long.
