” Tightened Contoured Line s “
Load eroding on the alloy
Passing a finished ravine
The engines crawl to a brief halt
As the shipment train waddles by
A continual band of decayed vans
In a sooty coasted rail yard
Arid ridges freckled with pine
Having given way to the destination
Sedges borderlining the rails
The sun sending an lardy incense of trailed cords
The saliva of streams with the dense
Brilliance with the naked arm marking the cross . . . . .
