The Tracks

By , royal oak, MI

The Tracks

The rails are cold 

Jagged grey rocks
Old wooden ties
Cinderblock wall
Paint chipping


Fields of dry grass
Under a shrub,
Strewn trash

A recycling plant is nearby
Bits of trash blow around
Like dandruff
 
Rusted box cars
Waiting
For a train that will never come

This placed has changed a lot
Yet stayed the same 
I don’t know if its better
Or worse

Blight
