          strikes whites
          whistles stiff
              at corners
           beats windows
                   shut-
           ters flapping
              back black
               and white
       a piston's hiss--
               no female
                 to this
           striving ever
          bitter prison-
                   break
            toward light
             toward dark
       desperate finger-
          ing each crack
                  freez-
                    ing-
                     ly
       until, almost, a
          word is in it
                avarice
