ten times

Train whistle sounding
through the night
not once, not twice...

  1. I love how this poem continues on in the space limned between the title and the few written words... just as a train moves across the landscape, prominent at the point closest to one's audible and visible view, then filtering off into the distances..........

  2. "not once, not twice..."

    The ellipsis seems particularly evocative to me.

  3. I think the title says too much. Better to leave this lovely poem a mystery.
