The trolley is for the people to board and ride. The trolley circles the park-site. It stops at the intersection of the drawbridge. It is electrified by overhead lines till the point of the drawbridge, then they drop beneath the ground. The passengers must push the trolley under the drawbridge to the position of renewed electrification. When the trolley approaches the drawbridge a stop gate prevents the inhabitants entry or exit. The drawbridge is raised so the trolley can be pushed through underneath.

Berlin Looms

the vanished can
still be felt
banal stanchions
of rusting concrete
envelop the outline
stretched wire produces
the void
air can be blue
the smoke geometric
ice cream licked
from the rafters
the obelisk was moved
on axis
the dry bark of
linden trees split
across the street
the moist shadow
of barges rippled
october ash felled
the pharmacist's cough
drops bought
fora mark
the black eagles swept
the boulevard clean
the canal became
a gelatin
the plan had been
erased
