“Erectors of bridges, builders…”
Erectors of bridges, builders
Of fortification gabions, are masters
Of ornamentation (pilasters and the cantilevers
Of palmette fronds, friezes, monograms) of coastal
Habitations – what is fated to be imprinted on water,
So explain, each in his way, naturalist, magician, and fantasist.
What of the fact that flush onto the other distance-times
The water transports the memorable within its bulk?
