"model train" by Lauren McBride
on dusty tracks by dark towns
after Dad's passing
Poet's Notes: I loved listening to my Dad plan his train layout; loved watching him build one design and then another that ran even better; loved giving him train cars and engines, buildings and scenery for gifts over the years. Now when I go back to my parents’ house, I visit his train set and if I try hard I can almost hear him telling me about the next improvement.
