even the dullest roof 
appears elegant in the cast
of the 4pm burnt orange glow

the mundane village
where everyone 
is going somewhere else

chimney's billowing:
smoke, from the assemblage
of a gruelling summer's work

a hardy people, the American's say,
they might have been once,
according to the auld ones

L.J. Siewerth
