Sparkle Plenty – The Cutting Zone

the road scar glares white in the summer heat
it sprawls, slumbering snakelike against the mountainside
forest voices hush at the warning plume of passage

silence is dispelled by the rasping whine
sentient violence voiced by machine
sawteeth blur a funeral keen
halt only at the fibrous ripping fall

on the road below senses are assaulted
the very air is saturated with a green
pinesweet astringency
hundreds of life years crash to the dust
as the Earth trembles at Her loss

(Swauk Meadow, july 30 1986)
