Whale Song

The noise of train in tunnel

Echoes.


Lumbering, rattling, clicking

The tug on seat, carriages shunting.


When it picks up speed it sounds like a space craft launching,

a whale song deep in the ocean.


Sometimes a bird flies at equal speed out the window.


Nature grows through tracks,

round and through our rubbish.


We build our homes from nature

I like how Stansted Mountfitchet feels in my mouth.
