different standard time...

This poem was originally typeset in uppercase.

DIFFERENT STANDARD TIME
   DIFFERENT PAUSES
   LAUGHING STOCKS
AND ROLLING BOND PAPER
BY THE POUND

I LOOK ON
   THOUGH THE DARKENING
   HEARKENING
WINDOWS
AND THE PULSE
   OF THE GRASS
   RECEDES
AND THE AIR RISES
AND THE NIGHT FALLS

EVERY
   DAY
