TIMETABLES BE DAMNED
Travelling towards a marching place
where walking is paramount
and healthy legs gain lengthy freedoms
wading in long green, engine
in revolution where grass is wild
and someone pays for restoration
of order, clean lines with visible tracking.
In the heat, nature is brittle, stands
in snappish mood as if memory
is inherited, and expectations assumed
and life will begin again when rain
arrives to heal the land, play its part.
