Overwhelming The Landscape

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 6:51 pm

There they stand

big

metal

overbearing

unattractive

uninvited

a chain whose

useless presence

is cast over

real people

good people

in a dark

staunch

long

black

ever towering

presence

one after another

miles down the track

involving neighbors

near their homes

not cutting their

properties any slack

like defiant walls

one after another

from Port Leyden

to Lyons Falls

towering over their

homes blocking

out their views

all they have been

told is a shallow

excuse

that other supposed โ€œstorageโ€

on unused track near an

unused station is happening

elsewhere all over the nation

no doubt I am sure just

frivolous patronizing misinformation

dismissing other states on tracks

in the open and middle of nowhere

while here in the middle and

edge of towns they bring a

metal ugliness one cannot

compare they do not belong

they should not be there!
