Signal not falling, no destination was found / Nor one stationed to run the programme;

bullet train

hanging on the words / with baited breath / but none hit the mark / they’re just making holes

snow falls in a new country, and you have forgott…

he will always remember you, like the bare outlines of a dream from which he still believes he is waking.

And the world fell down

So now when you ask me how i am / with that mocking concern in your eyes / I paste on a smile / And tell you i’m fine

Train Of Thought

“I can see the present, the past, / But no future. Is it there?”

The City Sleeps

Last Train

The midnight rain follows the train all the way to New Orleans / In the valley of desolate dreams / There’s work to be done but the w…

“Circus Train”

Worrisome my thought refrain / Those departing on the Circus Train.

Over the Hill

You never know what could happen, / Don’t want to say goodbye just yet…

Train Station

Train station / the ballet of the cleaning machine / around the sleepy tramp.

Fire On The Train At Broadway-Nassau

Feel the hush of the train / Rush of the sirens. / Feel the carrying on / Of us breathless tyrants.

“Midnight Special”

….extract? Who wouldn’t want to ‘board th’ midnight special?….


In kindergarten, directed draw / Blocks, upon the paper saw


Sensual Her form, unhidden grace / Sweet curves exciting along silent trace

“Wee One”

Black suite with polish shoe / Trainside there ’side train true


Do you hear the whistle on the track? / A freight train is on it’s way. / It’s softly and peacefully calling, / As it does this…


The mist hits my face as / I climb on the train, / My baggage in hand / I seat myself near the window / A young soldier arrives / And sits …

“Night Train”

Eerie platform ghost like bare / Black suited charge accepts the fare

Waiting for the Buzz

Haiku 29

Trains blow their horns / At each other. / Waking the sleepy town.


theres nothing left here for you to take from me. Dignity was non existant and washed up. Washed out and washed over. Face up to the music …


My pace is now too fast / My heart beat rapidly becoming / the kind of anxiety that causes a cardiac arrest / …

Passing Train

Candles fall off the mantle / As the windows rattle. / Like an earthquake, / The train is late.


An eighteen speed gearbox / Five hundred and fifty horsepower too. / One hundred and ten wheels. / Twenty eight axles spinning true. / It c…

Some Train of Thought I

Remember a girl / Just one. / Forget her / Like closing your eyes / While looking at the sun.

Today I caught the country train / Coming from far away / Back home. / It flew by fields and soggy mires, / Power-poles swimming in miniatu…


Watched a sun burst, / Behind a cloud, / Sun rays falling to the ground, / As traveled, / As wondering alone in a crowd, / As I remembered …
