The Eternity Machines


On the days

When the signalman

Hears his own scream,

And the freight trains

Run over

The suburb's supernatural beings,

The pilgrams jump

From the freight cars

And of immortality dream,

As they wash their clothes clean

And their minds keen, 

In confusions stream,

To receive death's vaccine

From salvation's spin doctors,

The petrified priests

Inside the eternity machines.
