Purple Haired Train

Stuck staring at train tracks.

Where do they go?

Who can really say?

Purple haired crayola cool

Girl in sunglasses

And the sort of sweater an electric eel 

Might wear.

Oil tankers

And money signs.

Fiberglass insulation.

The Union Pacific caboose

Bringing up the rear

And I am this close 

To abandoning my car 

Right here

And running off into oblivion. 

Won’t you come with me,

Purple haired crayola cool?

It just wouldn’t be the same without you.
