Take a landscape.
Look carefully.
Insert a train whistle.
Attach the pine beetle.
Inject a hunger
that disregards a relevance
for one side of the tracks
or another
[a mother,
for example].

Now, a puff of cloud,
its shadow
and something unnatural
bubbling up
[to the north].

See, things are not always
as they seem.
