traveling backwards
riding the trains
by juli mccarthy

Traveling backwards
looking through grit-encrusted windows.
The destination was the ordered collection of images, of art
arranged precisely in individual galleries.
Classified, sorted, catalogued.
Sterile.
The journey proved more interesting.
Piled tires and rubbish here
stacked railway cars like Legos.
The impact of nature on industry is still stronger than the reverse.
Water pools in discards
green in the grey.
In grubby city yards
disorder so profound it has the force of design.
A mosaic of broken windows
an ongoing exhibit of futility
and finally acceptance.

Juli,

Once again your expressive beauty has shined through. Keep up the great work. I look forward to reading, rather I should say experiencing more of your work.

Karl
