rail bridge


Train rolls overhead
Metronome of steel on steel
Sings a man to sleep


About this piece: As far as I know, there wasn't actually anyone sleeping under this bridge, but I can't ever pass over or under or even near a rail bridge without wondering who might be. This is especially true at night when darkness hides the things we don't want to see.

About the photo: Taken in Wake Forest on Halloween night 2009, not as a part of the photo scavenger hunt at Tiff-o-ween 2K9.

Love this! And where I live, the sound of trains is so omnipresent for a certain radius around the rail tracks, I'm sure loads of people sleep to that sound! It's even ringing in my ears right now!
