railroad days

railroad days

freight hopping

cigarette smoke

filled empty 

box cars

clattering

empty liquor

bottles

back and forth

to and fro

with

rocking rolling

from here to there

from there to here

across great plain miles

grey faced 

blue bib overalled

steam engine

soot covered

quiet broken

men

dusty

unpainted 

empty towns

&

hobo jungle 

tin cup coffee

lost souls

no home now

gone since the old dirt road was paved.
