Match With These Lines


Match with these lines
See
On the thin ridge
High in the mountains
There’s a train
The thin train hooting

I see
The clouds
Yawning terribly

Earth opens
Devours all
Humans run in vain
As ants run:
Over the ridges multiple
Into the earth open gaping
They’re falling
Falling
Falling.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
