Choo Choo Tune

(for Theo Erickson)

Trains ain't made to fly. 
They are made to tow
all the goods we love
and blow their whistle
loud enough to stop
and say, "Hello!"

Trains are boys toys,
but cool girls like 'em
too. They make funny
noises like choo choo,
beep beep, and the brakes 
go squeak squeak!

I ride a cool train
that goes underground!
It takes me to my
writing spot where
I can see the sun come
up and watch the pretty people

walking 'round my city.
Trains make me happy.
