*A Waltz Wave: Train Whistle


Train
whistle
fades
sliding
eastward down
the scale
as
it dis-
appears: all
I will know of
where it goes.
Falling
star,
streaking
from Leo:
all I
know
of its
fall.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
