  • «Men with picked voices chant the names
    of cities in a huge gallery: promises
    that pull through descending stairways
    to a deep rumbling.

    The rubbing feet
    of those coming to be carried quicken a
    grey pavement into soft light that rocks
    to and fro, under the domed ceiling,
    across and across from pale
    earthcoloured walls of bare limestone.


    William Carlos Williams
