April 7: Train to Tokyo

by allisonkujiraoka

It bore me far away from here

Today one week ago

Took me to a different realm

Train to Tokyo

Transported down the coastal line

Or as the locals say

We climbed up to the cityscape

Where countryfolk can play

Tunnels mar the ocean view

As urban sprawl encroaches

Garish lights and ads take over

As the streamliner approaches.
