Dirty Winter


The stalks were there,


tall khaki rows but no


corn, no heavy harvest waiting


to thump, ka-whump


against the old wagon sideboard.


The wagon sat,


shedded,


hiding from the cold.


The farmer the same,


shedded,


fearful,


his misery elongated by January;


his disabled land drought-stricken,


dying.


His hopes dying too,


as the dust blew.

Best regards,
Leland
