HOME TRAIN:
[Original 1986
Improvisation Number 01 24 2014
Improvisation [No. 10 21 2010


From city light horizons she is
Going to become -the lady musicale
Lady Day rising too soon sprung
Spouting with tulips and early spring
On the home train
My heart beats fiddle bass tones and
Sings desperate reasoning in my heart
Why her whole body stands on my soul
Softly resting upon that generation
Of secret separate trusts - intended
Passing smiles transfixed in being
Alive with joy -for just one more
Day from distant light horizons
On the home train
From distant city light horizons, my
City leaves me with my lady - my joy
On the home train to soon sprung
Early tulips crocus in rain in solar
Fun - my lady to soon sprung in early
Spring rises early to spread joy and
Join the fun
On the home train - one more day
From distant light horizons my city
Leaves me with my lady
On the home train to soon my heart
Beats fiddle bass tones and sings
She is too soon sprung joyously into
Spring - my heart beat sings for her
Whole body stands on my soul softly
Resting in my joy
Time is passing rapaciously through
The night passing city after city



(Lee Mack, Home Train: page 2)


The home train races from light horizons
Sucking my city away harmonized set to
Rhythms and blues - quietly my lady to
Soon sprung begins to make her midnight
Move - joyously leaping into spring
Blooming with rising suns with tulips-
Joy is passing time rapaciously through
The night I will hold her softly for
Nothing more than repetitiously passing
Time - she will hold me too - city
After city the home train races from
Light horizons to spirit lifted tracks
With my lady to soon sprung from
City light horizons on the home train
The city leaves a mellow glowing cinder
Each time I leave her she is the love
That draws me back - city after city
Now nearer home my love to soon sprung
In springs come and gone she is my wife
My mistress my platonic friend
City after city wherever she lets me in
She's with me every day - sits with me
On the home train she sets a seat away
At the cinema - on benches in the park
In the lobby -dining - in the sleeping
Car - the lounge and café -dimly lit
Snow screens a drink of informed catholic
Serum - the yellow horizon is hypnotizing
Fixing my view on pictures of you taking
My city away - I sleep where memories
Stay - under my lady's cosmic parasol
Hopefully lifted captured in a dark-room
Bloom in fullness with a moon lit by the
Sun passing windows on the home train.
