Panther lies next to Wharncliffe

and Wharncliffe next to Devon

and Devon next to Delorme.

In each a single fisherman casts

in the slow, black water of the Big Sandy.

Catfish is the whisker lurking

behind the bobbing cork.

He lives, it seems, in dense night

from day to day until the fisherman

from Wharncliffe pulls him out

to be fried in tin-roof, tarpaper shacks

from there to Matewan.

Politicians call this valley

a depressed area.

But, under the sun, my heart

will not have it so.

Straight up from the brackish water,

up the mountainside, green pointed trees

as close as bird's wings

grow fierce and clean,

and then for miles beside the tracks

the river moves faster over the rocks

and the water isn't black at all——

only the silt underneath.

The water over the rocks

is running clear and cold and pure.
