train dream                
 you  find   yourself  in   a  rift  -  a 
  clearing, narrow but immeasurably long. 
 to your sides  are walls made of  trees, 
 thick and ready to swallow you. the  sun 
 is  nowhere to  be seen, but  nontheless 
 it is very bright - the air  feels light 
            blue, almost white.           
 along the  span of  the clearing lay two 
    parallel silvery lines, dark hard     
 metal.  somehow  you  can see how  heavy 
                 they are.                
 they  emit   a  high   pitched  whine... 
 youre  at   the   train station,  on   a 
 catwalk above  the rails. your train  is 
 late,  or  you  are  late to  the train. 
 it's a summer  afternoon and the station 
 is busy,  full  of  relaxed  confidence. 
 you're  in high  spirits, although a bit 
 stressed  about  the time, while  moving 
 up the  stairs  to  your  platform.  the 
 station  is   in  several   levels,  all 
      placed within eachother by some     
    intelligent designer, and full of     
       stairs, elevators, shortcuts,      
 bazaars... you sight  your train through 
 some  glass  windows. it's... not  where 
           it's supposed to be?           
 you're finally entering the city.  while 
 it  is  indeed a  very high speed  train 
 you're  traveling  in, the  journey  has 
 been  long.  but   it's  about  to  end! 
 society is  growing  denser  around you, 
 through  the windows you see first small 
 shacks,  built of  metal and stone, then 
 proper houses with mortar  to keep  them 
 together... who  in turn  make  way  for 
    the industrial buildings, the urban   
      maze, protective walls, jungle      
 the tracks  leave  the ground, which  is 
 needed   for  other  purposes.  you  are 
   carried gently, curving upwards until  
 you're  moving upward along the  wall of 
 a building.  it's made of  slabby stone, 
    with great glassless window holes     
 looking  out the  way  you  came. it  is 
            pitch black inside.
