What Happened To The Rain Dance?

by Peter Erich

The water quality

will give you a hint

The cigar box reservoirs

filled with yellow-brown nests of ash

This is the ruthless extinction of freshwater

Hunting glaciers down

with plastic bottles

Searching for mud but

drilling up thin dust

Resurrecting the rain by

boiling the great lakes into deserts

Is this the end of the species?


but will it stay long enough for us to know

what it is like underwater?
