Rigs like metal pelicans slurped oil from bone-dry Texas flatlands. Ten Cadillacs shoved nose first into the ground, tilting eastward. In New Mexico, my father stopped the car under a boulder hanging so impossibly over a cliff that it appeared to be in the first stages of falling straight onto the road, and now onto us.

From Maureen Aitken's short story, The Family Trip
