Tales from the bucket

When the steam clears


There’s a proper sound

something real

a “Clunk”

a proper chunk of past

proper steel to steel

wheel to wheel

a “Thunk”

something you can feel


I Thunk!

I clod about in boots

steel toe capped boots

heel to heel

steel to steel

It suits me


they are my rails

my parallel tracks

in them

I feel secure

on track



Trains feel secure

sure footed


the past feels comfortable

together we are comfortable

on parallel tracks


When the steam clears

you’ll find us there

relics of better days

making proper sounds

heel to wheel

wheel to steel



and on track
