Spoors of industry. Blue,
then red, then gold, golden
brown, these concentric circles

begin. Rain. The brilliant colors
bleed. Blue into dull puce, anemic
red, and gold to pale amber against
black rocks. A small and silent

trickling becomes a flux.
Open wound. Metal quarry,
pierced with points of
stone. Prey, unseen hunter.
