A poem about finding love in unlikely places

The Conductor, Part 1

A spinster's life

Is a plain thing

Solid, yet lacking

The familiar


No shrill voices

Of children

No quiet


After love

She is always


On time and stable

Until she meets

The Conductor

Each morning

As she boards

Her train

He is there

And he sees her

Nobody sees her

Until now

Electricity which

Was untapped

Surges within

The fat gold band

On his finger

Slams the door

But still, yet

He sees her


Her heart races

Beats in her

Like a racehorse

Charging the gate

Each day

She looks for him

Each day

He sees her

She is alive
