Hungry Creek

  • A. K. Dewdney


You cannot tell what minerals compose the stones of Hungry Creek unless you pick them up and turn them over. Their tops are coated with an olive biofilm, and they trail long green tresses in the current. The creek enters the Hollow though a two-meter culvert under the highway, and here the stones are particularly large and plentiful. The creek spills over some of them, cooling and finding relief in the shade of willows, aspens, and a lone sycamore. It has traveled through fields of corn and soybeans to the north, overheated in the sun and overloaded with nitrates and phosphates from fertilizer.
