On Sunday afternoon’s walk
through the prairie, I tried
something new. I tried
to imagine it
without humans. No where
could I look and not see
humans’ impact. So I tried
to see it
after humans. It was sobering
and freeing
and beautiful—aliveness
everywhere. I’m trying
now
to hold this perspective.
I think it could make
a difference.
