As My Train Goes By

You are a train,

And I slept through my stop.

Now I can't stop watching people one city over,

Watching the minute hand cover the date

On my watch.

I can't stop thinking

That I could be just about anywhere,

Anyone, at any time:

Careless, intermediary, irrational

Insert interest, mildly intriguing,

Intermediate train-rider,

Cautious, sometimes nail-biter-nervous

To be seen,

But often wary of a passive sentence,

Always a writer, warm,

Master bench-sitter,

Loves to watch.

Just to sit. And love. And watch.






Abroad has been lovely!! If you read this and didn't know, I'm in Madrid and there is lots to see and many trains to miss! More abroad-inspired pieces to come.
