jokking fliercing shu by grue
and then

the complicated iron networks between the columns
welded on by means of brutal collars
bolted together like embracing C's
their flanges pierced with O's
and filled with T's whose
columns themselves are
embraced by O's
each collar giving iron linkages
one side "being electrocuted" the other free
except for the attenuated rungs which were useless
as the network was strong enough for climbing
the way a thing looks

in the foundation
which boils with blue mud
