And I will destroy your high places
And cut down your images...
The disembodied voice says
"Exit I40 at SR23 south."
The screen shows it snaking southwest.
Then ye shall drive out all the
Inhabitants of the land...
Before us the mesa thrusts up
Three hundred feet skyward.
Ye shall utterly destroy all the places
Where the nations served their gods.
We must buy permits to ascend
And get green stickers on all cameras.
He made him to ride on the high places
Of the earth, suck honey from flinty rock.
The guide says, "We are not history;
We are alive; we are still here."
