Empty Tracks

Empty Track by Jacki Potorke
Picture Taken By: Jacki Potorkeone

There are 365 stakes,

And 52 railways.

The first day is new,

And the last is occupied.

There are 12 cars that travel here

And 7 stops along the way.

Every year new stops,

Every day new chances,

Every year new tracks laid,

And every day new stakes purchased.

These tracks here are empty

But soon

They’ll be filled with memories.
