Awake at 3 a.m. and a train in the distance -- feeling like the only man awake in the entire world. You know the feeling . . .

Dark hills beyond the shore, the world
is asleep. . . The dreamer likes awake
in his bed, listening to a train
braking in San Luis Obispo, California;
slowing through town, picking up speed,
and rattling away toward the southern
oblivion. . . It is cold and foggy
in the sleeping world.

A heart awake is a terrible thing,
like distance squeezed into a glove.

"A heart awake is a terrible thing,
like distance squeezed into a glove", this is very deep, indeed. Blessings to you, Kevin!

the condensation pours out of this one!
Reviewed by Christine Tsen 10/31/2011
Wonderfully ingenious and mystical with an unexpectly profound ending!
