train delays

there should be sparks
when trains break
and slow to station stops.
yet we are kept on the precipice
of motion and weightlessness
drifting without brakes,
bundles of cotton too heavy to float
yet too light to fly,
we weigh heavy,
having been dipped in sour wine.

our trains weren’t made 
to bear this weight.
