Big Wind

8 May, 2012. Omaha, Nebraska

Big wind, lays 
fertile fields fallow
in the foreseeable future

Locals lean into crosswinds
welcome sign bent ninety degrees

Broadway is lined with self-assured crows
who've outsmarted town elders 
dropping carrion on people pumping gas
before departing into moonless dark
