Taunt Those Awakened


         Trains have haunted the nights in West Table since 1883 and disrupt sleep and taunt those awakened. The trains beating past toward the fabled beyond, the sound of each wheel-thump singing, You're going nowhere, you're going nowhere, and these wheels are, they are, they are going far from where you lie listening in your smallness and where you will still lie small at dawn when they are gone from hearing ........

This Nothing


The train of thought
my tickets of insight
a quiet of the sleepers
the tranquility of this nothing

right alongside a somewhat crazy
Absolute Disaster who is interested in his own opinion

I experience true peace
Not apart, nor together
Signals are red but each thing will change
