india!
a rare & different breed
women line the railroad tracks in
orange yellow blue saris
scarves & shawls
babies
dirt dogs
pigs eating railside trash
that grows in piles
all along the way
green fields flecked with palm trees
concrete buildings rising one by one
huts
hovels
mopeds
motorcycles
the train throbs along
taking us deeper in
to this ancient land
as the chai guy comes around
with steaming dixie cups of
sweet hot tea

riding the rails
somewhere in india
darkness floods the cabin
as my neighbors sleep
train at a siding
3 am & counting
flew all the way from
yangon
as the world spins
on her axis
