DSC_1967Thunderous, pounding noise
breaks through
Sunday afternoon,
smashing silence,
smothering bird songs,
vibrating earth.
A magpie’s wings
fan out and gliding, it
lands on the
hard pack
in front of me.

Trains.
Tracks.
Gaping wounds
through earth,
bringing heavy
loads, loud,
from here

and there.
