From Le Spleen de Poughkeepsie

  1. Thin ribbons of cloud and half a ruinous moon
  2. in an afternoon sky: meager sun gilds asphalt
  3. briefly and slides out of sight as the furnace
  4. kicks on again: in the tumult of equivalences
  5. between split log and smoke, margin and note,
  6. my knowledge unbraids itself from freed
  7. finitudes: and whatever sense of the possible
  8. the afternoon offers vanishes in a lethal twilight
  9. broken by a single steeple, an abandoned
  10. railway bridge spanning here and there, value
  11. and use, the shapes this city assumes
