The clickety-clack startled her awake. Had jumping on this train been a mistake?
Like this small town once thriving, now barely surviving, what’s to lose?
Dark shadows under her eyes reflect in the window.
The entire world awaited.
Her heart, once as murky and forlorn as this bay at low tide, suddenly rose in her, buoyed by a New Life calling.
Closing her window shade to that holding her back. Lyrics hummed in her head “They don’t exist anymore. Time to say goodbye.”
The clickety-clack lulled her to peaceful sleep, as the train rolled on.
