LAKE SHORE LIMITED

The little girl-women
pile onto the train
carrying backpacks,
pillows and stuffed animals,
all they will soon leave
in the rooms of childhood.
In the train’s café, Gerald
welcomes us back
his “established customers,”
he says to all, as we sit
beneath the wide awning
that is his smile,
sipping the much
needed coffee.
