Splendid!

celine, of course, wins the prize! Wilipedia says
In a Station of the Metro (first published in 1913) is a poem by Ezra Pound, and one of his best-known works.
Here's a page of criticism about it and confirms what you said:
…Pound portrayed the "Metro" poem as a crucial turning point in his career, a work that forced him into an "impasse" ( GB 89). He struggled during a period of a year and a half to complete the poem, and cut it down from thirty lines to a single sentence
I never heard of it before. It's beautiful. Thanks so much, paulmike!
