Panels of memory, superimposed
over the valley and the distant ridge
of the view from the terrace edge.
The land stretching out, a huge
hobo's supine shapelessness
bathed in light of day, insouciant
(an equilibrium, a universality
of possibility... your hopefulness).
I crawl through time there -
cenozoic troglodyte, fossilized.
Survey the incremental waste
regions - map thin air.
