drought and dry weeds
every road sign and billboard
pierced by a bullet hole


a column of pheasant chicks
marches into the grass
























summer rain
the injured yearling's cry
stilled by the knife

above Blacktail Dam
the curlews take flight

























pronghorn antelope
plunge across the road;
the hard, red wheat

a dust trail rises
along the horizon
