The last train is nearly due
And in the dark deserted station
A man waits in the shadows
His restless eyes leap and scratch
And hidden deep within his pocket
He holds a colored crayon
Now from the tunnel's stony womb
And opens wide and welcome doors
Deeper in the shadows
And the train is gone suddenly
Like a gently tapping litany
Tighter in his hand
Now from his pocket quick he flashes
Deep upon the advertising

The poem across the tracks rebounding
His legs take their ascending flight
