Households resurrected on railroad farms

a consultive moment
dropping pertinacious eyelids
a sea mile from coarse laughing
predatory fresh water drift nets,
drivers in chronic reason
not classical
not romantic
but an adroit flushing to
our established weights
like agrocultural dissemination
drinking comely celestial fountains
for a comedy of magnate manners.

In the pulmonary caress
of our out-stitches
our fountains, our assembled rest
we tie factories, we bind monuments
in consultive moments
across the arched wheel spinning in
the undelivering noon sun
in households
on railroad farms
we are not driven
but patient for raised platforms
on the hull of sown indifference.
