Poetry by Travis Cravey

The Hunt

The pronghorn, skittish, dodge over the other side of an arroyo. My rifle never  left my side. Thinking of you, I lost sight of why I was there. You don’t walk through the grassland of New Mexico for pleasure, after all. I don’t think of you for any other reason. New Mexico has its purpose and can keep it. I put my sad, slumped shoulder  to mine.
