Train to Milwaukee
Go placidly into the December afternoon
and know that the journey is good.
The gray of approaching evening sky
offers comfort to a day well spent.
No battles worth the time to fight, no
villains given a second glance, no gossip of
interest to turn the ear. Only this
evening to watch go by. Only this
moment to put my head back
as the train to Milwaukee brings
me closer to my loves. Their home is near
and my future is warm in the light
of that moment which has become
this moment by and by.
