[Hey, folks, time for an L.E. Leone poem—but not just any L.E. Leone poem: an L.E. Leone poem about trains! How cool is that?]



Two of my dearest dears wrote
poems about trains last week, so
I thought I would jump on board


One featured the clatter
of the tracks, while the other
touted the toot-toot of it all


That leaves me with steel
on steel. Or the tick, electric and
loud, between cars in the station


Silence. Hmm: This one
is way up there somewhere
in the mountains, buried in snow


To think, just last week I learned
that shhh is spelled with three h’s,
not sssh! . . . I am ready now.
