we will all be on that platform

we will all be on that platform 
hailing  

the last train out of town

            the question

            of whether it is
pulling out of tranquility 

or steaming toward it will 

most likely be the one

leaning on the doorpost of memory 
memories 

of your run
of the world spinning toward you
the glory of each sunrise

glinting on

the sickle that was

        always mere inches

from the back of your neck
how you knew 

even at full sprint 

  you would 

             like all before you

                      finish second 
fading

into the crowd

as the victor 

collected

    another bouquet
