Steel smell of hot tracks

walking the rails
8 or 9 years old
finding dead rabbits
skinning them
for interest
sun high in the sky
searching for green apples
pennies on the ground
tar bubbling through rocks
kites, bikes and skates
forts in trees
days in green
dogs that may/may not bite
tin cans on string
shrieking whistles along the wind
shoes that wear out too quick
out long past supper
hiding from the rain
staying away from indoors
once again
