Rapid Transit title
Halvard Johnson

Glorious Monday! I know a good
deal about the sunken road, but
all that was exciting to me

was a continuous oil slick air
and sunshine had no cure for
until that little platform

ran along beside me for a bit,
entirely different--
sublime as a nun entombed

in a bricked-up wall, perfectly
definite, though having nothing to
do with her skill at jumping

rope, or her rest and con-
sequent recuperation.
Requiescat etc.
