One Reason
Look inside my little train set.
      No masked men level guns
    at penny-sized passengers.
When lilac blooms brown and fall
                        some small angel tips his hat
     and retreats back into a stone.
Every night, chained dogs compose
    fight songs on the ribs of lonely trees.
            My soul is their excuse.            
Well, that’s that.
