November Natchez, 1863
.
.
.
Spongy homespun suits, sopping, stoneweight,
turgid, seamless serges, saturate,
streaming sodden shelters, scarred swollen shapes
scared to swamp the Mississippi steamships,
stranded soldiers, stockstill side-by-side,
soul-soaked, skin-drenched, scan a listless tide.
Septicemic unwashed places, social
graces scarce supply, unstirred flesh, miasmal
seepage stunning senses, cedes the scene
as certain suicide, erasing sights, scents, obscene.
Constant sheeting, slanting sleet, slapping faces
astern the upperclass salon's plush places
snug, serene, secure, ship's officers and crew
musing men in misery, with Pilate wash up, too.
