     toddlers stand
by iron railings squinting at the streets

     faces peer
from head-to-toe costume of all station for to talk sincere to each other

     faces caught
in crowds all around in the streets or behind railing at the quay
     eyes look
all uncomprehended at the small-box-world that defines their photograph

     written boards
and pipework discern heights of window in the stepped architecture

     lines and staves
the borders between vision and boundary

     a tool
for each and every level of function at each and every station
     of life

deck and perspective wider than a lifetime down which only
     one strolls

and each chain link that holds the ship titanic as a child’s torso
