One summer day I ventured into the photo archives of the Public Library in New York looking for vintage costume designs and found a photo of rails set on ties in a piculiar perspective where a wide width of rail move round a turn into a single point far off. The perfect illusion of time itself built in railroad track of great strenght in its beginning and fading there after.Now, at this time I'm thinking of developing a poem dedicated to the early railroad builders I have a vague feeling for at this time, found material being a good way to set forth a poem of a hitorical nature. I truly value things found by chance and specially knowing nothing is without reason, is it.
