Part XXI

The impulse to scream dissolved
as firstly the tram danced off the track
then smashed straight
through the barrier

gripped by a intensifying fear
as it rolled around the circle
like a fairground ride
gone wrong,

as the wheels of the tram
spin a furious pattern
lighting firstly in the air
like fireworks firing backwards

then a rocket taking off suddenly
with screams carrying all
along the tram tracks

cutting through the sinking sun
with the rapidly rising moon
stood there frozen
looking shocked.

I understand then.

Only then I understand alright
what she meant.
