Drought in Chong Khae

The ditch is dry. 
No water runs in it in front of our house. 
In my imagination milkweed pods burst
everywhere.  Their seeds fill the air like snow
and I begin to feel the land itself is being driven
aloft by a dry, un-Thai wind.  We are moving
away from where we once lived, moving away
from our home.
