here’s this train again

spell it out
cut to the truth quick
i’m slowly following this muse
will you mull it over
a little longer
or will you pull me under?

if i board a bus
and the metaphor
brings me to your door
will you mull it over
a little longer
or will you open in?

here’s this train again
destination sayable
where would you love
these wheels to roll?

if a bell rings
and there is no answer
have i wisdom anywhere?
standing here
singing like a fool
may i laugh through my tears?

here’s this train again
destination knowable
where would you love
these wheels to roll?
