Empties Coming Back by Angelo de Ponciano

have you ever sat by the railroad track

and watched the emptys cuming back?

lumbering along with a groan and a whine,-

smoke strung out in a long gray line

belched from teh panting injun’s stack

– just emptys cuming back.

 

i have – and to me the emptys seem

like dreams i sometimes dream –

of a girl – or munney – or maybe fame –

my dreams have all returned the same,

swinging along the homebound track

– just emptys cuming back.
