Train Track To Abstract --Brevity

I'm late, and must wait, while a gate holds me back from the tracks, of the train passing by.. All that freight, makes a dash while my eyes try to grasp graffiti that is now flashing by.. On the side of each car is a scar that was splashed by a guy with a message to send.. It departs 'round the bend So the gallery ends.. Farewell to the art from a friend...

    yes, as andrea says, it has a certain lyrical quality, as so many of your pieces do; some nice subtle rhyme within it - congrats on a well deserved win! :)
