The radio spectrum burns skin black
cones for radio
towers for radio
glass for light
the body is glass for radio

to the south
is a reservoir of passenger-miles
a reservoir of phone calls
turn the telescopes
the bodies opaque to light

Clouds mean nothing below
snow blows white balance
of white ground white sky
white sun above nothing below

White cannot penetrate
opaque bodies
the motion of bodies
their communications
can only be observed

Inside these bodies
it is black
none of the light that
falls on the mountain
can reach these caves

to the north
Green water in the steepest valley
