Rain lines the sky obliquely
steel winds scrape fretwork eaves
stripping old dreams,
dumb tears streak
exploding in mist
on the platform’s edge.

White knuckles
rattle the window,
pale palm waves,
pain flows,

face melts
behind glass
misted out of breath
where droplets kiss
and run.

The train pulls out.
