a train passes someone laughs


I saw you rushing past with 

your fifty mile an hour ears 

and eyes and nose 

all synchronized 

you looked my way 

and at my  hat 

Then  on you sped 

in your tiny  little Train curving oh  so far , far , far  away along
the track 

I could fit you and  train  and 

distant moon  inside  my hat 

and still have room enough 

for my  blue guitar - 

and by the way , there was no copper glaze or   crimson blur  or  blue

red of  sky or hat 

you imagined of it all 

when sweeping  past 

and  further  more 

and by the way, 

just as you passed, you 

laughed out  loud  I distinctly  remember that , 

but who is laughing now 

further on down the track 

ummm... anyway it is now 

time to stop.
