oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

tracks to everywhere

And here are the tracks that yesterday's old buildings were gathered around. The building in the background here looks well-kept, and I wonder if that was a little station once upon a time. What I see is a pair of train tracks heading straight into the distance. What I think of is forever, and heading to unknown destinations, and so many places I've never been.


And there is the headlight,

shining far down the track,

glinting off the steel rails that,

like all parallel lines,

will meet in infinity,

which is after all where this train is going.
