Poetry Month: Writer’s Digest PAD challenge, day three topic: a machine poem

Railroad Tracksthis ride

two a.m. I’m

feeding

First step,

first scrape

Photo files

filling fast.

School days

Scratched out

Dentist, doctor,

dance class.

Grey hairs

wrinkles

Acne and heartache

Winding quickly

down this track

I’m two a.m.

waking

stops ahead

I’m breaking

 (this isn’t quite the poem I want it to be yet … for now this is it)
