Trainspotting

UP 2649
UP 6395
UP 7907

UP 7430
UP 7282
the old lineman 

must've written the numbers 
with our blood
she says

we hear the
ghost call
2 a.m.

owning our dreams
5 a.m.
rattling the frames

10 a.m.
grabbing the ground
beneath our soles

9 p.m.
pumping through our lungs
just off the tracks where we've come to belong

waiting our turn to write down a sign
then waiting again
for the return
