🌿 The Tamper

We watch a machine

– a railroad tamper –

iron claws pinch and lift rails

hydraulic fingers dig and scoop

around, under each railway tie,

methodic and rhythmic in its

chugging clinking clanking inching

down the rail.

In its wake – a straightening

levelling, realigning that

makes me wonder if

a world tamper exists

somewhere.
