Surface cracks at myfeet on this dry boneyard. This land was once fertile – productiveand efficient. Terrain dynamics are subtle, but the change isnoticeable. The process is taking its time, but much has passedalready and the shift is undeniable. The sun was amplified. I walk onwith fire through the great plains, among crystals of salt and veinsof coal. Agriculture has reshaped, as did the settlements and roads.I left the heater on and departed years ago. Then returned – thedeadbeat – to adapt to the barren plateau.
