At Holmesburg
Susannah Nevison
 
        All I saw before me were acres of skin. It was like 
        a farmer seeing a fertile field for the first time. 
                                            DR. ALBERT KLIGMAN
 
 
If one takes the bird's eye 
 view, it's easy to see 
 how a field becomes 
 a fine-tuned system 
 designed to give us 
 exactly what we want: 
 row after row of finely 
 turned earth, pliant 
 beneath specific tools, 
 which we sharpen 
 in dark houses after 
 a long winter's sleep, 
 which we drag across 
 the earth until it yields 
 a pattern we can work 
 with, a matrix we bless 
 with growth, control 
 for weeds, eradicate 
 what shouldn't take. 
 What we want is to push 
 the boundaries without 
 giving way to 1
 To see what might 
 survive these methods 
 is what we want, to raze 
 what fails us. Summon rain. 
 Under ideal conditions, 
 it's anybody's game.
