Moving Train

The railway tracks below me move like scratches on a movie cross the frame outside the window and I'm going back to London in a carriage full of smokers who are banned from sparking rollies in a long no smoking section as they're getting rather tetchy without leaves between their fingers so the atmosphere is hissing to the noise of wheezy laughter and the grass is blurring upward as we clatter down a valley Gipsy Rosie reads a paper from the lower end of Fleet Street while performing circus tricks with plastic coffee and a biscuit on her lap as gentle George who's spying watchfully from opposite disguised behind a copy of the Amateur Photographer makes disenchanted noises sensing imminent disaster as the coffee reaches orbit and he joins it when his kashmir coat is splattered brown with Java so the mood is turning crazy as the babies and the toddlers start to scream with fear and anger and the parents' eyes turn skyward wishing God had made them sterile while I'm hoping that my fingers act as serviceable earplugs because otherwise I'll join them in this mood of railway bedlam howling words unkown to children but I'm sure this blasted rhythm that is clacking down below me has corrupted all our minds and made us start to think just like a moving train!

No full stops...i was exhausted reading this Tuttle.

I hate trains though. In fact i hate any public transport.

Hi... ermm... Breathless (still think of you as "Phoenix"). Sorry if this wore you out. It is supposed to be breathless; a little like how I felt after that train journey.

Hope you are recovering from your various traumas. It's good to see you here

It may be bedlam and the noisiest din...but it is fascinating as so many lives unfolding in such a small space...It can be a pain ...public transportation...but it is how you choose to view it...I choose the positive view...it makes it more interesting and fun...*smiles*
