by Christopher Barnes

Choo-choo skips gaily tracking
Back to death of the near
Cold metal more indigo than the languid language
Of love’s niddering farewell
Ashen-faced passion would not bio-degrade
Sandwiched between the station walls
Dejected, not making the grade
Of a hero’s million choices

Eschewed by Christopher Barnes
