Making Tracks

by

Darryl Ward

She said there was no way
to immediate success
while we were riding on
the trans Siberian express

The porter brought more wine
vodka laced with snow
from premium distilleries
in opulent Moscow

I shook my head and stared
I really couldn't think
I stared across the aisle
at those afraid to blink

He was off to see his daughter
to meet me he was glad
his name was Vladymir
he came from Leningrad

She said I was a fool
to wander all the time
away from the real world
to a castle built of rhyme

I shook my head and stared
I had no place to go
but a never ending track
through never ending snow

She said there was no way
to immediate success
while we were riding on
the trans Siberian express

Maybe she is right
I guess it will unfold
from pictures drawn with words
moulded from the cold
