Rillito – by Alison Hawthorne Deming
Rillito is a stirring poem written and read here by Alison Hawthorne Deming. If you come from the relatively water-rich East, you might have a hard time believing that the Rillito is actually considered by Arizonans to be a river. Deming plays with this idea in the poem, while at the same time hinting at the grave water issues threatening the Southwest.

The Rillito River Project shows the lighter side of environmental performance art by going fishing in the Rillito River. The river has been sucked dry for more than half a century from the pressure of human water use.
