The Whistle Blows
unknown

Ah, the whistle blows
 1
and side doors swing open,
 2
spitting out lines of suitcase
 3
gentlemen.
 4
The station hustles
 5
then settles down,
 6
with thick black smoke
 7
rising between the trees
 8
and crooked telephone poles.
 9
 
Another whistle
 10
and windows fly wide open,
 11
showcasing heads of blue-eyed
 12
children.
 13
There are shuffling black shoes
 14
and youthful laughter
 15
riding on salt-water wind;
 16
a single bird singing
 17
from a bending branch above.
