Railroad Days

railroad days

freight hopping

cigarette smoke

filled

lonely box cars

rolling 

clattering

empty liquor

bottles

back and

forth with

rocking 

rolling

track steam

engine soot

from here to there

from there to here

grey faced 

bib coverall

spirit broken 

old men

from dusty

unpainted 

hobo jungle 

tin cup 

coffee empty

lost souls

going home

gone 

since

the old dirt road 

was paved.
