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

in-tacked

 

Trains feel secure

sure footed

comfortable

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

thunking

secure

and on track
