The Descent of Winter: 10/30

Bohumil Kubišta, Train in the Mountains

To freight cars in the air

all the slow
   clank, clank
   clank, clank
moving above the treetops

   wha,  wha
of the hoarse whistle

   pah,   pah,   pah

   piece and piece
   piece and piece
moving still trippingly
through the morningmist

long after the engine
has fought by
              and disappeared

in silence
           to the left
