All Aboard?


Lonesome rails carry stones into the valley of the gun.

Bone yards gleam quicksilver beneath a cold winters sun.  

Patriot’s faith of yesterday; forgotten dreams stole away.

Rambling rumbles comes soft on the night train of a dreamer’s highway.


Whistles melancholy now blow all aboard.

Platforms empty into chasms dark door.

Blank expressions claim the sea of desperate faces.

The conductor smiles as to those who the darkness chases.  


Oh lonesome rails that lead to home.

Bone yards glisten; going, gone.

All Aboard????

each train riding the rails to death's embrace has its own speed and destination ... good metaphoric poem, Allen ...

there is an intensity within the rhythm...could hear the whistle and the clack..going, gone...well done expression
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 3/6/2007
Could this train be from the "other side" or at least heading in the direction of the bridge to nowhere...enjoyed this different side of you...Ed
