drought and dry weeds
every sign and billboard
displaying 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
