Okay. Fat. Fat as a goose.

Black Earth:

Time, a substance 
Needful as an instance 
         Of the indestructibility of matter; it   
         Has looked at the electricity and at the earth- 
Quake and is still 
Here; the name means thick.  Will 
         Depth be depth, thick skin be thick, to one who can see no 
         Beautiful element of unreason under it?

Marianne Moore.
