the old man in black sits and waits
by the deserted railroad station
holding a plastic bag full of smoke
& dreams heavier than led
the old man sits & waits
time passes
with gray poisonous dust filling the sky
slowly the old man gets up
forgetting the bag at the station
his feet dragging along the side of the tracks
suddenly a train appears
filling the old man with a smoke cloud
the train & the old man disappear
