Edmond Station


Edmond Station

by Jason McDonald

What stories has this station seen

Of people waiting for the train?

Where have these rat’ling wheels been?

Always different, always same

Silence fills a crowded room

Social lines that won’t be crossed

All wonder “will it get here soon”?

But sit so still as if they’re lost

If walls could talk, what stories then!

Of loss and love and pain and life

Oh, that it’d speak of things that’ve been

And break this silence, sharp like knife

What stories have these people seen

These humans waiting for the train?

Where have these shuffling, scuffed shoes been?

Always different, always same.

    Great poem! It paints a picture of a depot filled with diffent folks with a certain sameness. You are very talented, Jason.
