DOWNBOUND TRAIN



I had a boy
we took a train
it went very far
with travelers in rain

we reached a beach
spoke to the clouds
watching the rain
drowning the waves

then came a home
in a coconut grove
I had a fever
that put me to sleep

we bought little soap
and a took a tiny boat
the waves were gone
leaving us behind

we walked on and on
and the land ended
the train came back
whistling through nights

we only had love
and drowning waves
he took a train
and never saw him again
