Chasing Steam

Click, clack,
the world turns black
outside our windows.
The lights are elegant
neon streamers
u   n   r   a   v   e   l   i   n   g
behind.

Here’s your head on my
shoulder, and the sway
of the tracks that
wanders us back
to the way
he would
smile.

    This is so, so beautiful, De.

    This is my favorite part:
    “The lights are elegant neonstreamers”

    And “behind” on its own line made me giggle.

    “Wanders us back to the way he would smile” – what a wonderful phrase!
