6943 - Poem by Wild Bill Balding

(On seeing Umberto Boccioni's 1911 painting 'States of Mind-The Farewells')

Couples kiss in khaki shadows,
cascading into carriages' cavernous mouths.
A ribbon of fire is laid on the platform
as the train rolls ominously through,
a juggernaut of lamps and numbers,
panting a fog to embrace and envelop
those who thought they were spectators.
Telegraph wires, above it all,
pass the train from section to section,
oblivious to the shadows' final destination,
though the fire, fog and frenzy
hint at the hell to come.

    A ribbon of fire is laid on the platform
    as the train rolls ominously through,
    good image for ur reader. I like how you set the stage then get to it...like a movie. good job.

    Wow....absolutely EXCELLENT...how sad and deep, im assuming this train met a fire of some kind? the kissing lines in the first verse were so vivid yet so abstract. You have skill my friend (Report) Reply
