this land

two honeybees rail
against the blowing dust
fluorescent vests

a few stray sunflowers
at the end of the line
geese are departing

the prairie on fire!
grasshoppers leap from the ditch
along Road 2051

cows have tipped over
all the surveyor's stakes
rocks and stone

dry grass, tall and amber
I release the cicada
I kept in a jar
