Dust Bowl by Melissa Ann Meyer

 

Dust Bowl

 

21 following something hypothetical

After growing old in a dust bowl

A retirement home for those too young

to see much past it.

And I may as well have arrived on a train

in yellow tint and a floppy hat,

with all the gun-crooning “cowboys” –

But someday we will know that “wild blue yonder”

gave way to the breath of progress
