  1. This is fantastic! The subject is also something I’ve spent a great deal of time in my life thinking about: America’s backyard junkyard, always visible from the train.


  2. I was looking at photos, a few hours ago, of families living in disused train carriages the fathers had once worked on and wondering how can this be. Turn a blind eye sums it up. Amazing the reflections you hold on to, Paul, from your commuting days and the perfection with which you’ve captured the journey and the problem.

  3. “either way
    stolen cars
    broken dreams
    they both have their markets…”
    how true…I felt I was riding in the commuter train…you certainly delved into the minds of the riders…on the train…and in life…
    Wonderful writing as always!
    I think you should be the Poet Laureate of our country…You are such an amazing poet, Paul!
