T is for Train

For some the train is a beautiful machine for others the train is a number to place in a book and for others the train is a train of thought not to be broken. A train can take you from A to B and E even to D and back to A again or to B or to E or even if you started in C back to C. On a train you can sleep or nearly sleep or daydream or stare out of the window and bring about fecundation or death demanding on your journey. You can fondle to ecstasy drink to oblivion read to enlightenment listen to euphoria hope to joy. A train can take you to Margate a train can take you to Istanbul a train can take you to Treblinka.
