Outcasts Waiting….

through the railway yard

coloured

beasts of burden

the muscle of metal

unyielding

and unforgiving

a space tucked away

for a graveyard

rust buckets with

torn seats

defined as heaps

waiting….

a face behind a mask

a soon forgotten signature

to end the misery

gone are the days

of rattle and hum

and bums on seats

for now

outcasts waiting….
