Derailment

Coaches clambered up
each other
in unbelievable convolutions
catch the passengers’ cries
in their crumples.

The broken tracks littered
with luggage, limbs: mustering

to free themselves
of the irrevocable train wreck,

trying to catch hold
of ticket stubs to faraway stations
in which are wrapped
itineraries, dreams.
