Poem by Mary Hobson


Movement of Trains


Thoughts,
like stones in a sieve,
jostle for survival.
Wheels clatter
over the rails.
Details
are shaken through the dusty grid,
witty unspoken retorts,
what they said, what he did,
leaving the ones that matter.
And you live
with your own,
travelling only to postpone
arrival.

25th March, 2000
