Engines/Insectarium

Dry laughter of night trains-
beneath scoliotic spines of galaxies
and moonlight rib bone stark around the boiler-
nips the ghosts of idle machines. The chains
holding cold engines have no weakness.
In neat cryogenic sleep, dreaming of breath,
their tidiness evokes emptiness;
emptiness imitates death.
