TOP TEN MILES OF TRACK BETWEEN COLUMBIA & GLADSTONE ON THE CSX RIVANNA SUBDIVISION

#1: walking by big beasts/of industry tied to tracks/running back & forth
#2: toothless whining horn/warning so I step aside/let it rumble past
#3: searching hieroglyph/scribbles for familiar signs/my hand wrote before
#4: “bremo bluff haiku/river water baptism/saves mechanized souls
#5: I smile at that day/pulled happily from within/my skull’s hard-head drive
#6: Markal C Paintstik/hand’s natural extension/mind’s natural thought
#7: back end blinking light/follows the rumble meekly/whispering $$$
#8: natural silence/returns, river ripples cause/crinkling symphony
#9: blade shapes paintstik point/mind unleashes nonsense - box/cars become canvas
#10: “let these words wander/beyond library papers/which will one day burn
