Train Going Down
by Angela Yuriko Smith

The train going Down,
Down grinds in with a huff and vehemenous clouds
of poisonous smoke boiling through oily air
stinging your eyes with brimstone and tears.
There’s no forgetting, only regretting
and a voice in your head that sings…
All aboard, you’ve packed your bags
and the train is leaving the station.
Don’t worry about your travel plans.
This is your final destination.
Your ticket was paid with your deeds as trade—
you made a road with all of the stones you threw.
So now Down, Down the train must go.
Wheels scream and cry against smoking iron.
Every star turns in shame. The day falls away
like a shroud. Your life is forgotten.

Mae discovers that the whispers are true — there is something sinister wandering the Whitebog area at night. Little did she know that the ultimate story would be her own… and she’d by dying to tell it.
