earth shifts

Near the island’s base,

I approached those vaulting stacks

whose steel then shaded me,

 

and would have come closer but for

the future trips I’d have

in which to see such sights

of scant interest.

 

Twin towers of smoke

the next year on

two rivers cast

their shadows.

 

Even where

you stand, the earth

beneath you shifts.
