earth’s branching veins
I can walk right through
not even crumbly


In New Mexico, a stream bed is called by its Spanish name, arroyo. Back before the drought of the last decade began, the arroyos running through the landscape here commonly had three or four inches of water flowing through them much of the year. Now they are more like tiny ravines, ever dry.

As for the drought, there is plenty of evidence that it’s not due to a caprice of nature. See for evidence that the excessively dry conditions experienced in the western United States for the last seven to eight years have been artificially created.
