your rail pass

take me on up
to the railroad tracks
through the gravel
til we reach the peak
holding hands
ties beneath our feet
the moon tunnels
through cloud covers
yes, i’ll kiss you back
for the first time
e-ver-y time
lights rush by
and sweep us
off our feet
all this and more
if you take me
up on the railroad tracks

  3. Love the very subtle romantic undertones in this poem!! There is something about railroad tracks, I find….wondering just where they lead (both literally and figuratively).

  4. This brings me back to when I was a child, traveling across the country with my parents. At several motel stops in the Midwest, I would fall asleep to sounds of the endless freight trains in the distance, and wonder. Mostly, I imagined myself running away and becoming part of that journey to anywhere else…
