Oxenholme (station)

atop a hill overlooking Kendal
since 1847
a man in a fisherman's sweater, flatcap 
and ratty old field-bag
rain or shine

discordant symphony of aging tannoys
pending arrival
from Euston Station

assortment of raven colored taxis
parked half on the sidewalk
half in the lane
some with fares booked
others hopeful

final horn warning of arrival
Brit Rail Mark III
coming to rest
an electric hum
the heartbeat of modern travel

slipping away from the station
heading north for Edinburgh,
black umbrella,
calling points Carlisle, Lockerbie, Haymarket
it didn't really matter
