The Sound of China Breaking

 

 

 

The dogs scramble over slabs of sandstone

that have toppled from an outcrop on the far side of the canyon;

strewn about by gravity, as if a cave woman had set out her dishes to dry.

So I toss a rock to get their attention, and when it hits

the ground at their feet, I hear the sound of china breaking.
