The thick black line

A thick black line goes right through my house
a darkness eating chairs, table, floor.
It splits the roof in two.
Looking out the window, I can see it running off, over the hills
heading straight for Buffalo,
across Lake Erie
and beyond.
Meanwhile,
a vast shadow
in the shape of a woman
covers the Western plains

Another interpretation here.
