Bodies in Orbit
It’s a curiosity – to see the back side of suburban life.
Where familiarity ends and adventure begins.
A test of one’s spirit:
glaring out the kitchen window and
into a passing railcar.
Speeding along to God knows where while one remains stationary.
Vibrating all-round the house is
the constant hum on the everyday life.
While washing dishes, putting away groceries,
seeing mystery speed by at 150 mph.
