Topographical Preference
by Michael C. Keith

I’m attracted to the High Plains. I don’t much like them when they’re low. They don’t have as much to offer. When the land climbs, I feel myself rise, too. Like I’m leaving behind the things that get me down. It’s nice to see from the ground what you usually have to fly to see. That’s why I like the High Plains. Is that something you can understand?
