In the train – roundtrip

Safa Park, Dubai, April 2011
Safa Park, Dubai, April 2011
All these heads, nodding in the same pace
As the wheels hit the rails,
or the monotone sound of rail joints hitting the wheels.

I close my eyes – and get a wider picture;
I see a veeery long train
one hundred cars, or even more!

Each car is one of my lives
ore cart, freight wagon,
wooden bench in third class,
second class, locomotive…
A pulsating chaos.

All these people
are a part of my life,
are a part of me,
are me, an alternative me,
Different days of my life.

I figure in this life, I’m the post wagon

Or that boy on the bridge,
who spellbound and wide-eyed
count the cars.
