The Intoxication Of The Freight Trains

 

On nights

That you love to hate

When their timetable

Is out of date,

And intoxication

Is their fate,

The freight trains

Learn to masturbate,

In the side paddock

Where the ghost gum's shadows

Run to late,

To communicate with the silence

That they've ate,

Behind time's swinging

Broken gate.

The romantic sky hesitates

Then drops

Its pornographic plate,

The fair moon

Cracks and shatters,

And the  freight trains

Are in an awful state,

Their fits of ecstay

Can no longer wait.
