    “fleeing ”

    nine in the morning it rains there are no clouds j
    ust a dark gray block in the sky angelic concrete
    i am longing for something or someone to come
    in to this rain with me
    alas the freight train
    she won’t come
    she has never been here
    nor can i see her smokestack on the horizon
    and when the sun sets
    the sun does set in the rain
    but i can’t see it
    the freight train will still have not passed me by
    what would i do in that train you ask
    i would get out of here
    to another place
    another time
    another land away from the nightmares
    away from the cures
    at this point
    this point right here
    we are all mad
    the disease is the Garden of Eden
    i give into the garden
    the garden is in the freight train
    there with wood paneling
    like an Irish grandmother’s home there with drinks
    there with spirits
    the freight train rattles and my longing evaporates
    it is now nine at night
    i have not slept
    i have not slept
    i will not sleep
    the freight train
    i don’t see her
    she won’t come for me and my longing
    the rain will not come
    i was born on a rainy day
    the rain she is my lover and my companion
    and she also sits with me in longing for other skies
    that only the freight train can give or take away
