i travel in my mind inspired by my friend kimberly at SeA SHeD...

I wait for the train whistle
The later train
The Saturday train
To
Take
Me
To
Milford Boston East Saint Louis
Kansas City
On a canvas on a song on a plane
On the rails
Happy trails
Miles Bird Boots & Herb
There
A stopover in Harper's Bazaar

Sketching
As the train whistle goes by
Sketching
Coffee & marmalade
The sailcloth curtain
Studio
&
Morning
Quickly quickly everything quickly
Sketching
Lily lighting the candlelight

Ah
At last
The train whistle

I travel in my mind
