On these flat lands the asphalt extends forever.
The car shudders with bumps and speed
but it is as if the land is moving and we
are the still point between earth and sky.
On the horizon, dark lumps of trees
move slowly through the heat haze.
It shimmers as if the land
is dreaming of water.
wheat silos appear
above the heat haze
