Invisible Tracks

visible to the trained eye
that eyeballed maps
found the carved loops
and whorls, sat in
the way-stations
where
passengers had waited
for interurban lines
snaking through
neighborhoods, leaving
ancient markings like tribes
lost to smallpox.

city’s ebb forced locations
to change,
and white flight preferred
automobiles to trains,
fighting each other
for prime lawns stalked
by deer.

the rootless forgot little markets,
and quaint became the
word to describe the loss.
