The Era of Air-Conditioning

The US desert southwest
Is a sort of miracle
Rigged by irrigation and

How long the era will last,
Is, in the American expression,
Anyone’s guess, but not long,

Suggest. Previous eras
Left visible bones and wrecks

From a century or less
Of successes that went bust.
You must see this rhyme coming,
Written in their dust. You must.
