Mullan, Idaho 1955

Somewhen down the mountain
in the narrow valley of night
truck tires whine
train whistle moans
while up here
nine years old in grandma’s bed
rain stains on ancient wallpaper
show shapes of never was
places of never will

There’s the here
there’s the getting here
and there’s the ghosts in between

– Smith, 9.8.2016
