union station chicago

latina burdened in backpack
snug against her small body
a journey just begun
sad eyes
lips tight
cheekbones and chin
standing tall

earth note 93

pittsburgh to chicago on the capitol (capital?) limited

efficiency of the steel rail
when finished & true
and separated from the human hand
is most elegant
if left alone
add humans and trains
it becomes less elegant
less efficient
still better than concrete wastelands
but add in the transport
of tanks & oil tankers
it becomes...
delivers our nemesis
