All Aboard

She is standing on the tracks,
waiting for a train to pass.
Her lips are a velvet line
of sweetness.
Her hair
is a beguiling mess.
The suitcase she carries
rides the curve of her silky hip,
and the blue sky dulls behind her.
Her eyes are a mystery,
and I'm left enchanted by the sting.
All I can think is,
"God, I wish I were a train ... just this once."

    Excellent! I love where your mind went with this and it felt genuine to a tee. One question though... is she standing ON the tracks or BESIDE the tracks?

    how much Irish are you anyway, Caleb? I think I am lucky if I am 1/4 Irish, but I am 1/2 Welsh. Does that count, do you think?

    You have painted such a vivid scene in the reader's mind, Caleb. I love that most of the poem is spent describing what you see, and in the last line we are given a glimpse into your thoughts. Wonderful!
