poetry by j matthew waters

runaway train


runaway boy trapped inside
an empty box
thoughts traveling thousands of
miles per hour
shirtless and friendless and speechless
sights set on any destination

freezing inside on a starless night
small fire burns inside rolling stock
holding out hands
craving another smoke
occasionally peering through slats
at a moon chasing eerie clouds

tumbling headlong through an
unknown countryside
flowers and butterflies and
home-cooked meals
infiltrate dreams inside a train
racing backwards and driverless


november two thousand fifteen
