Thanksgiving Analysis

What a day to dismantle a roller-coaster.

Well, they are taking it down--

the tracks are all over the ground

and the ties drawn up. The ticket office

is shut, the calliope covered with tarps.

These workmen move their rides

from town to town, with the weather,

and a day gained dismantling

is a day to them. They are grateful

for the day gained, and for the silence

in a park where only ducks and I remain.

As if against the numb fall sky,

sounds of hammers and crowbars

and the changing voice of one man's oldest son

rebound from pond to light pole and away.

Tomorrow they'll be on their way

to Arkansas, or a place they haven't

been before; today they're making time.

Today they're making time. The doors

of the van are open, the van is dark.

The cars stand there in a line, as if

they are not well or have something

to tell the man who stands on the tail-gate.

This corner of the park is nearly flat.
