Abstract

ROAD TO THE MINE/Mary Armstrong Winter Quarters Mine, Scofield, Utah, 1900 The coach filled with men comes early, comes late, rumbles past cabins next to the tracks, fills them with shadow and rattle. Miners, drivers, boys who work deep Ui tunnels, lamps clamped to their caps, doze standing up, wrenched through the gash of the canyon to where earth is mountain carved mto tunnels and shafts. In Springville, tilacs have bloomed, but here nothing flowers. A few twisted trees between rocks, then the entrance to Mine No. 1 where men drop through dark cables creaking them down with clotted black coal, on platforms that shudder and tilt, through the beUy of weatherless earth. Two shifts a day filling carts filling their lungs with its dust, spitting between circles of snow the taste of it out as they pass on the mountain, coach swaying mto the mouth of earth. on steel, carrying men through dayUght and dark, rocking the weight of their bodies 14 · The Missouri Review HILDA/Mary Armstrong Winter Quarters Compound, Scofield, Utah, 1900 AU winter, I've talked to myself. Jake would say I've forgotten my wits, but it's comfort when wind blows through cracks and windows
