He’s at attention, musket raised to

an oncoming train.


A ghost story dwells in steel

caverns below


Boston Common. A man in a red coat

vibrant enough to stunt


breaks. A conductor stares into

the whites of the soldier’s eyes


on the six a.m. commute. Two men.

A Patriot and


a British soldier,

standing guard of the mass melded


grave of

a thousand fallen clones.


The patriot drives

Bostonians through underground




They inhale these

dusted souls as


wheels screech between

Boylston and Arlington.


A reminder:

history is still as


tangible as

a blood red coat.
