It Could End

SAM_0321.jpg

Sticky hours between trains
from one coast to the other
By land, the long way east

You’re disoriented and perspiring
Retreat to the shoreline
The enemy has been released

Follow those ex-cons and
military men, they’ll protect you
from the salivating beast

The train back west isn’t for days
and you know all the miserable ways
it could end
