Tracks

tracks
straight and narrow
disappearing
through a tunnel
off again
tracks
bring the promise
of adventures
joy of journeys
yet to come
tracks
hear the engines
feel the motion
taste the steam and
smell the smoke
tracks
at the platform
whistle’s blowing
doors slide open
and OH NO!
‘Blasted tracks!’
Mum tripped over
in the hallway
all my tracks are
in a mess
tracks
cut her finger
on the tunnel
which lies broken
on the floor
tracks
time to pack up
tracks in boxes
play next door out
of Mum’s way

  1. I’m glad you think it’s funny, Ryan. It was inspired by my children’s train tracks all over the house when they were young.
