Structure Pylons The secret of these hills was stone, and cottagesOf that stone made,And crumbling roadsThat turned on sudden hidden villagesNow over these small hills, they have built the concreteThat trails black wirePylons, those pillarsBare like nude giant girls that have no secret.The valley with its gilt and evening lookAnd the green chestnutOf customary root,Are mocked dry like the parched bed of a brook.But far above and far as sight enduresLike whips of angerWith lightning’s dangerThere runs the quick perspective of the future.This dwarfs our emerald country by its trekSo tall with prophecyDreaming of citiesWhere often clouds shall lean their swan-white neck.
