Janus 14

when viewed from behind

the trees run away

 

eventually we will get nowhere

but the trees will still be running

 

across the desolate red planet

to escape its thirsty heart

 

a rumble in the distance lets us know

that we are watched from above

 

and the trees run faster

futile attempt to outrun the lightning bolt

Janus 13

slowly the train rumbles

from one side to the other

 

south to north or north to south

no one really knows

 

the red land fades to ochre

a greenish yellowish tinge

 

and the silver boughs are still

as the train slowly rumbles by
