Human Movement

by G.E. Simons

Depots publish dismantled timetables
Steaming with sap and greaseproof poly
Blobbing the safety tarmac with human glue
And nonchalant tickets matching numbers
For main lines and caged routes
Plumed sputum of passing through

Departures from pale suede lounges
Emergent convex safety glass faces
Internal mechanical discharging diesel
Hacking from imported engine parts
Spattering sods of tobacco rich saliva
Punching fists of exact coinage
