Thereandback by Libby Hathorn

Standard

Train leaps forward

silver track

bullet fast

there and back.

 

I

 

Love the sound

murmur to scream

gnawing and gnashing

on rails that gleam.

 

When

 

Stations loom

shudder and shake,

slithers to stop

great long snake,

 

then

 

Train leaps forward

silver track

bullet fast

there-and-back

thereandback

Thereandback

There-and-back.
