Train Track To Abstract --SF

I sit, running late behind crossing gates and must wait as the train passes by... All that freight, makes a dash while my eyes try to grasp graffiti I see flashing by.... On the side of each car is a scar that was splashed by a guy with a portrait to send... There it goes 'round the bend So the gallery ends... Goodbye 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! :)
