I whisper at the sky as sheets of rain sting my face. Water rushes by me, swamps my boots, and fills Carver's Gorge up to my shins. It's a steamy wet, a loud wet. Sheer walls rise on both sides and jumble the sounds of foam and thunder. Miles away at Brockton High, teachers drone on about the composition of rocks and good poetry. But in this deep ravine sliced into forests of California pine, my world is wild and alive.
