Lee & Ray inside Liuna

beautiful tom-tom whisk
brush over hi-hat snare,
foot pedal pounding out war cry
steady.
hear the heart beat rhythm
chant beginning through floor,
lungs a voice on two legs
taking tremors through
vocal cords and strings.
-this train station is awake
hibernating tracks, vibrate out doors
earth pebbles, bounce on steel
richter scale heartbeat, tick tapping
a passengers ticket.

dear VIA
hear the sounds of the steel skywalker
and come home to us
the world of Canada sings inside and outside
these doors……

-where more can we travel? – leaving home.
