The Mill Yard.

The snow settled, and the tracks of the

Train cut the blanket of white,

And the carts rested in still inertia

But the shipment goes out tonight,

As the bundled figures moved

The giants of steel and hydraulics

To fill its belly with freight.

Quieter today, and filled

with brief small talk,

Because of what’s missing.

A skeleton crew

Since yesterday’s layoff,

And living with this

Check is going to be rough.
