Found Poetry 331


in the cluster of undulating coalmines
those irregular manhood circuits
the entrance a formidable centrifuge of a mouth
the men pass down like a ball through a wicket
swinging their picks in bubbles of toil
so they may later rise up, beaten but breathing
a forever lingering dust drench mocks their skin
proving, yet again, that color is an illusion
