Definition
a deep narrow steep-sided valley — especially one formed by running water
  • The car brushes by and hands reach out for me, pushing, grabbing, and I lose my balance, the bike wavers under me and heads for the ditch, the steep ravine by the side of the road, and I am helpless to halt its progress toward the ditch, and the wheels spin and I hear raucous laughter as I loom at the edge of the ditch and then feel myself falling, spinning, sucked into the ditch, sucked into the wetness and darkness of a sudden startling nighttime.
