As dad lay dying
we played big band music
from the forties
a sentimental journey
to set his heart at ease

  quiet carriage
only old-fashioned sounds
the turning of book pages
the rustling of newspapers

    I start again
my search for freedom…
with each slow step
the cow's udder sways

they say
the wildest women are quick
to age
but who wants to live
in a world of Sense and Sensibility

  I saw a woman
in the window
of a passing train
so easy
to fall in love
