Sounds In The Night

A shrilling whistle echoes through the tunnel
Sharp squeal metal on metal tracks
Scent of burning black
Blurring coal cars racing timely fast
Through cold gray concrete tunnels
Triples a warning horn
To homeless there


Dark shadows of torn old coats
Running through the night
To their cardboard refrigerator boxes
And old dirty soft blankets found
Among the trees hidden from view
A teakettle screeching
And red-orange barrel of fire for warmth

Homeless people nowhere to go?
