On Tuition Debt, Generational Cost Shifting, Another War in the Middle East, Etc.

Drought outside, one hundred two
A run of these since early June
The crops in gnarls, relentless heat,
The rows of stunted lush ongoing
The sear straight-jacket leaf
To stalk–this I commune
And worse—
A land, a youth
More wizened than me.
