The train journey

Together we need a respite from howling
In the inner depths of the train’s night,
Clackety clackety, inside full with feeling
I stir along with the train and thought
She the train better stop thinking violent
Not puffing like her coal-eater ancestor
While mind walks slowly like the blue bird
That went up and down on the telephone wire.
Train-fans stir cold wind and winter air

[Hata Bildir]
