Carstopped At Streetlight. Half A Dozen - Poem by umashankar manthravadi

carstopped at streetlight. half a dozen
laughing faces. laughter heard in passing.
cold sound hung rail tolling in the
distance. a train stopped in darkness middle
of nowhere now full of people. in passing
a face wideyed caught in afterimage.
horn of boat gull cries trains
trundling in dreams. the sea never stops

child now awake
clutching a pillow
stumbling in the dark
looking for warmth
