I’m amazed at the way she carries
her weight,
angling ahead, temporally,
saying so much. And how I lay;

in wonder; empowered—marching mobile
machinery, peace-marking;
undercurrent undulating
in the pleasing empty lamplight,
encompassing—stacked down places—
lines of lights,

satisfied within a distillation
of quiet memories.

An only recalled farmland,
twin fistfuls
of Northern arable homesoil,
granulated, phantomed light
drenching, permissive of emission, byway

fieldside grown eyes, concretized,

Acuity and detail,
escaping vapor, an image
sought before respite; Manifold:

The buildings’ wash,
I rise.

The buildings’ fall,
I wash.

The buildings’ weep, the peoples’
feel, I wash.

The peoples’ watch,
the buildings’ fall, I rise.

The buildings’ feel, the washers fall,
the peoples’ sweep, I fill.

The risen reel, the washers feel,
the buildings’ lie, the peoples’ fall,

I heap.
