Songs About Trains

I woke to the sound
Of the wind,
Like voices in the street.
Swathed in sleep,
We lay there for a long time
Listing all the songs
We knew about trains
And dedicating our day
To staying in one place;
Tracing outlines of each other
And letting time go by
Quietly.
I wanted to thank him
For looking at my body
As if it were
The one I wish I had,
But I let it go unsaid,
And let him hold me
Until it was dark again.
