Landscapes in miniature
Crush this mile thick sand
then tilt fold fuse — the scarp screams
This ridge reclines
It climbs and declines
Strata and syncline
bound pads unmarked on paper
These lines of contour
suggest landscapes of abstract
The existence of
here depends on those peaks by
bearing grid backward
